Zoe & Sam fly the flag in USA

A pair of GB Park+Pipe skiers put on an impressive showing in qualifying at yesterday’s US Grand Prix in the Copper halfpipe.

Zoe Atkin, 15, was competing in her first-ever World Cup but put in a nerveless display on her way to 15th place in a top-class field.

Sam Ward, 18, sent down in a strong performance to place 14th in his heat, and 27th overall in what was only his second ever World Cup contest.

The US Grand Prix continues through to Sunday with snowboard halfpipe as well as the ski halfpipe finals, however no more British athletes are in action.

GB Park+Pipe's Izzy Atkin and James Woods will feature at next week's Dew Tour along with GB Parasnowsport snowboarders Owen Pick and James Barnes-Miller.
