SIERRA NEVADA, Spain (March 25) – At the conclusion of the FIS World Cup halfpipe season Monday, Torin Yater-Wallace (Basalt,CO) stood second and David Wise (Reno, NV) third in the halfpipe standings, yielding the globe to Canadian buddy/rival Mike Riddle. The men’s final was canceled due to fog, so officials used qualifier scores as the final. As a result, Aaron Blunck (Crested Butte, CO) finished fifth, the top finisher for U.S. Freeskiing, while Riddle took the top spot.
