The U.S. Para Snowboard Team ended the season on top in Mt. Sima, where Brenna Huckaby, Noah Elliott and Darian Haynes won, and three more finished on the podium. 

The athletes took on the same dynamic course set from yesterday, where the difficulty was accentuated by the cold weather overnight. The course featured unforgiving, tight turns that could easily take even the best horizontal. 

After the first run, Huckaby, Elliott, and Haynes had the fastest times in their categories, while Mike Minor was second and Zach Miller was third. 

Despite winning their classification in the first run, Huckaby and Elliott both put down electric victory laps to improve on their already winning runs earlier in the day. Elliott put on a banked slalom clinic all day, taking a risky high line that paid off in the end. This is Elliott’s sixth win of the season.

Huckaby won for the seventh time this season in the women’s LL-1/LL-2 event. Dennae Russell ended the season with a fifth place finish, followed by Courtney Godfrey in sixth. Darian Haynes improved upon her results from yesterday in the women’s UL event to finish on top, alongside teammate Peggy Martin in second. 

In the men’s UL event, Mike Minor continued his successful weekend to finish on the podium again in second place. 

Zach Miller earned his fourth podium finish of the season, finishing third in the men’s LL-2 classification. Keith Gabel was right behind, finishing fourth, alongside Evan Strong in fifth and Joe Pleban in seventh.
