X Games 2017 is well underway at the moment out in Aspen, with the first set of results trickling in this morning. The kicker was looking super firm, and it certainly claimed a few riders, including possible favourite Jamie Anderson and Slovakian up and comer Klaudia Medlova.

We’re super stoked that women’s big air is back on the program at X Games, and should only help to accelerate the progression of women’s snowboarding to lofty new heights.

Check out the runs from the top three finishers below and stay tuned for more coverage from X Games over the next few days.

3rd: Julia Marino (USA)

Julia Marino is looking more and more solid in every contest she rides, and took home the bronze with a massive cab double underflip and a smooth backside 720.

2nd: Anna Gasser (AUT)

Anna Gasser has been smashing it so far this season with multiple big air wins on the FIS World Cup circuit and a second place finish at the recent Laax Open. She continued her strong showing last night with a perfect cab double underflip and a second trick that we’re still trying to track down (it’s not shown in the video above for some reason).

1st: Hailey Langland (USA)

But it was Hailey Langland who took the win last night with a super stylish frontside 360 and an insane cab double cork 1080 – the first one landed in competition by a female rider thus far.
