ASPEN, Colo. — Local snowboarders and Hannah Teter and Elena Hight competed in the X Games Aspen 2015 women’s Snowboard SuperPipe finals Saturday night at Buttermilk Mountain — and neither could crack the podium. Teter finished seventh and Hight placed eighth.

Teter’s top run of 51.00 came in the first round — the Sierra-at-Tahoe boarder’s next two earned 48.00 and 10.66. Hight had her best run in the second round — she had a 21.66 in the first round and a 32.00 in the last round.

Fourteen-year-old Chloe Kim of Torrance Calif. captured gold in the event, scoring a 92.00 on her third run to overtake seven-time gold medalist in the event Kelly Clark. Clark, from Vermont, took the silver with a 90.00 and Australia’s Torah Bright brought home the bronze with a run of 78.33.
