Everyone knows Japan is the powder Mecca of Asia, and quite possibly the world. And this year has been no different as the small island country has delivered the goods.

The Winter X Games are considered the height of action sports achievement, and Dragon’s Julia Marino just reached the peaks of that height for the 5th time. The Connecticut shredder grabbed the silver medal in Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle, the 5th medal of her career (and of the past calendar year).
“Hyped to come away with my 5th [X Games] medal here in Aspen, Colorado! Congrats to @jamieanderson for taking the gold and @ennirukajarvi for taking the bronze And thanks @xgamesfor putting together the most fun course as always,” Julia wrote on Instagram about the contest.
Marino, 20, has been on a roll lately. In addition to her X Games silver, she recently locked up her Olympic berth for the US Team and looks to continue her winning ways there. For more about Julia, follow her on Instagram.
