About 130 riders drop in

While the slopestyle riders did train this morning for their season's first World Cup, a big and deep field also got its chance to train in the perfectly shaped halfpipe at Copper Mtn., CO, this afternoon.

A total of some 130 riders from all over the world, led by the strong hosting nation USA, dropped in to work on their runs for the season's second Halfpipe World Cup which also counts for the World Snowboard Tour.

As it was the last training session before the official qualifiers, which will take place on Thursday morning, everyone was testing and pushing for it.

Besides Louie Vito (US), who threw in back to back doubles also his US team members such as Kelly Clark and Scotty Lago did look good already and comfortable with the pipe.
