Jamie Anderson wins European Open

Under sunny Switzerland skies, Jamie Anderson snapped up the top spot at the Ticket To Ride's European Open slopestyle competition for the second year in a row.

Her run consisted of her signature cab 720 into a switch backside 540. In the jibs, Anderson opted for a pair of backside lips, seemingly a newer trick in her technical arsenal.

"It was the best riding I have ever seen from the girls," Anderson said in a statement. "I love the new course. It's great for creative runs. I'm so happy that I won because my mom stayed up all night to watch the finals."

At 93.58, she tore through the competition more than 10 points ahead of Enni Rukajarvi of Finland. The win puts her at third on the TTR tour.
