Burton European Open 2012 – Pictures from Mens & Womens Slopestyle Semis

Jamie Nicholls blows the bloody doors off Mini's 'creative use of space' section.

Where did all the powder go? It’s positively roasting here in Laax, where Burton are hosting their 13th annual European Open. Today saw the men’s and women’s slopestyle take place on a brand new south-facing course, meaning some soft run-ins, lots of work for the wax technicians and plenty of suncream for us photographers. The main story from a Brits perspective was that Jamie Nicholls qualified through to the final, while Ben Kilner and Aimee Fuller unfortunately missed out. You can cheer on Jamie on the live webcast tomorrow (Thursday). In the meantime, here are a few of the choice shots from the day’s action…
