At the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain, the weather won, canceling the events due to unsafe riding conditions for both the men's and women's freeski halfpipe contests. With the cancelation, the men's and women's freeski halfpipe final results came from the qualification results that went down earlier this week, resulting in a Stifel U.S. Freeski Team podium sweep. 
2024 X Games gold medalist Alex Ferreira took first, X Games bronze medalist Hunter Hess was second and Nick Goepper took third place - his career first World Cup halfpipe podium. Outside of the podium, the U.S. men continued to dominate, with the top eight spots held by Americans. David Wise was just off the podium in fourth, Matt Labaugh fifth, Birk Irving sixth, Cassidy Jarrell seventh and Aaron Durlester eighth. 

For the women, Svea Irving led the way, closing out the domestic World Cup schedule with a fourth place. Teammate Riley Jacobs was sixth. 

With being the last domestic World Cup on the calendar, Irving, for the second year in a row, was crowned National Champion for freeski halfpipe, alongside teammate Ferreira for the men. 

A big shoutout goes to the operations team at Mammoth Mountain for putting safety first and doing everything they could to put on a safe event.
