Devin Logan competes at the 2018 U.S. Grand Prix on Dec. 7, 2018 in Copper Mountain, Colo.

 

Two-time Olympian Devin Logan showed her stuff on the skiing superpipe — the latest innovation on the Dew Tour schedule of events — and emerged with a bronze medal on Friday at the latest Dew Tour stop in Breckenridge, Colorado.

The modified superpipe adds a new challenge to the traditional halfpipe in that it includes jump features both before and after the pipe. It’s a new twist in that skiers and snowboarders not only need to incorporate the jumps into their runs but also think about how they enter and exit the pipe and plan accordingly.

No one took better advantage of the new setup than Canada’s Rachael Karker, who made her Dew Tour debut a year ago and finished 12th. The up-and-comer scored an 87.33 to beat out countrywoman and reigning Olympic halfpipe skiing gold medalist Cassie Sharpe, who came in second with a score of 84.67. 

Logan, who won a silver medal in slopestyle at the Olympic Winter Games Sochi 2014, finished third with a score of 71.00.

Last year in PyeongChang, Logan, a West Dover, Vermont, native, became the first American skier to qualify in both slopestyle and halfpipe at the Olympics and finished 10th in slopestyle and 15th in halfpipe.
