Megan Eileen McDonough photographs the first World Snowboarding Championships since 1999.

THE COMPETITION was broken up into three separate events: Slopesytle, Halfpipe, and Quarterpipe, the last of which only men competed in.

Iouri Podladtchikov (Switzerland) and Kelly Clark (USA) won the Halfpipe runs, while Chas Guldemond (USA) and Spencer O’Brien (Canada) were the top Slopestyle boarders. Winning the highly anticipated Quarterpipe event was Olivier Gittler from France.

The prize for Best Trick was awarded to Kim Rune Hansen, and Terje Håkonsen took Highest Air. Both boarders represented Norway in the competitions.
