All eyes were on the 22-foot pipe for the final day of the Burton U.S. Open. Under a blue bird sky, ten men and five women competed for the USO Halfpipe title and a $45,000 prize.

Heavy hitter Shaun White stomped a Cab double cork 1440 followed by a double McTwist 1260, which put him 10 points ahead of the other competitors. He landed in first-place with a 92.74 (as if there were any other option) and earned his seventh USO Championship Halfpipe title. In second place was Australian rider Scotty James with a solid 82.87 and Chase Josey from Idaho finished third with a 79.87.

As for the women, the younger generation is keeping the pipe dream alive. Sixteen-year-old Chloe Kim defended her first place title with a 87.12 and seventeen-year-old Maddie Mastro came in third (78.25). Elena Hight took the middle spot with a 80.12.

As far as finales go, the 2017 Burton U.S. Open Halfpipe Finals are going to be hard to top.
