Jamie Anderson was victorious on home snow in the women's slopestyle today at Mammoth Mountain in the United States, becoming the second International Ski Federation (FIS) Snowboard World Cup winner of the season.

On her second run, the American scored 86.32 to take the gold medal away from New Zealand's Zoi Sadowski Synott, who was leading after the first run on 82.50.

Britain's Katie Ormerod was fourth, followed by the US' Hailey Langland and Dutch boarder Melissa Peperkamp.

Norway's Hanne Eilertsen, Americans Jade Thurgood and Courtney Rummel and Loranne Smans of Belgium completed the top 10 in the final.

He scored 82.88 for gold, followed by run-one leader The Netherlands' Niek Velden van Der, who finished on 76.56.
