Sep 22, 2016

Words: Jeff Schmuck

With the final set of events on the Southern Hemisphere competition schedule now wrapped up, it’s time for our last look at the AFP World Tour Rankings before its hiatus until winter begins in North America and Europe. This past weekend, the Cardrona Games (which consisted of not one, but two Men’s & Women’s Slopestyle events, along with one Men’s & Women’s Halfpipe event) took place at Cardrona Alpine Resort in New Zealand, so here’s a look at how the top results shook up the rankings…

Cardrona Games Men's Halfpipe Podium:
