HAFJELL, Norway (March 10, 2017) – The American snowboard slopestyle ladies earned two of three podium spots at X Games Norway on Friday, with Jamie Anderson (South Lake Tahoe, CA) earning silver and Jules Marino (Westport, CT) taking bronze.

Anderson remains podium perfect in X Games slopestyle, earning her 13th medal in 13 starts over the last 11 years. The most decorated slopestyle athlete in X Games history (male or female), Anderson used her trademark smooth, stylish riding to earn her seventh-consecutive X Games silver medal.

Marino is also podium perfect at X Games, having earned three medals in three starts—all of them coming in 2017. The 19 year old earned bronze in big air at Aspen in January and topped the field in slopestyle at Aspen with a gold-medal performance. 

Both Anderson and Marino, as well as Hailey Langland (San Clemente, CA), who was sixth in slopestyle, will have a chance to earn another medal in big air on Saturday night.

Anna Gasser of Austria continued her dominant season with a gold medal slopestyle win at Hafjell.

There were no American men in the slopestyle final. Red Gerard (Silverthorne, CO) just missed the cut, finishing ninth. Brock Crouch (Carlsbad, CA) was 10th and Brandon Davis (Big Bear, CA) was 14th
