Words and photos by Daniel Ronnback. Full recap to come.

Finals were crazy, it's the same every year. Last year was like ”What the F"… and this year was the same. We just made history tonight in Åre, Sweden. The first switch double 1620 was stomped. Frej Jönsson did double cork 720 and double cork 900 safety to blunt. In two days, eight or nine new tricks went down. This was the best competition with the highest level of riding. And the man on top, was Gus Kenworthy. He stomped a switch triple rodeo 1440 and a double cork 1620 blunt perfectly. Right behind Gus in second place was Vincent Gagnier while third place belonged to Aleksander Aurdal.

Final Results:
1_ Gus Kenworthy
2_ Vincent Gagnier
3_ Aleksander Aurdal
4_ Frej Jönsson
5_ Russ Henshaw
6_ Kai Mahler

8_ Elias Ambuhl
