In front of a 25,00 strong crowd, athletes were eliminated and Kelly Clark goes back to back three peats under windy and snowy conditions.

Coming off a Womens Snowboard Superpipe three peat in Aspen, Kelly Clark goes three peat in Winter X Tignes, marking six straight golds for Kelly.

“Im happy.” Clark said in an ESPN press release. “I think it was really hard with the conditions tonight, but I thought all the ladies rode really well. Ultimately I am happy walking away with the win.”

Look out though ladies, the young gun Arielle Gold won her second bronze medal in only her second X Games appearance, the first coming at X Games Aspen 2013.

In other events Iouri Podladtchikov needed to dig deep and pull out a clean second run to get himself into the finals. After a disastrous first run, Podladtchikov landed himself in third joining Vito and Lago to set up a Shaun White free SuperPipe Showdown.
