After a day of weather delay, the finals of the North Face Masters took place Sunday at Snowbird, Utah, with Aaron Robinson, the overall champ from 2010, taking first for the men and Maria DeBari winning for the women.
Robinson, who had high-speed runs throughout the contest and landed a huge 360, took an early lead and won with his first run score of 94.33. "I feel great, excited," Robinson said. "It's really good to be around amazing people and talent; I've made countless friends through the contest." Ralph Backstrom took second with a second run score of 93.00, and Ryland Bell placed third with a second run score of 92.67.
In the women, DeBari was in third place heading into her second run, but a clean, smooth line and a score of 83.3 earned her the top spot on the podium. Kaitlin Elliott and Laura Hadar tied for second with a score of 78.33. "I'm very stoked, wasn't expecting to win but I tried my hardest," DeBari said. "The girls stepped it up so much from last year, everyone was so close. It's great to see how much everyone has improved."
