The event serves as the unofficial kick off to the North American contest season, while the entire US Grand Prix series acts as a mini-tour where the snowboarders compete for US Olympic team berths. With her 2nd place finish, and being the highest US woman in the field, Julia earns a valuable “1st” in the race to an Olympic spot for the US in Big Air.

Next on Julia and the contest world’s schedule is the Winter Dew Tour in Breckenridge, CO, Dec. 11 – 14. For more on the event, visit dewtour.com.
