The 12th Burton European Open kicked off in Laax last weekend, with Ty Walker claiming the Juniors Halfpipe title and Isabel Derungs taking the Women’s Slopestyle comp.

Ty Walker clearly dominated the girls pipe yesterday and bagged her 4th BEO title with a big frontside air, a backside 540 mute grab, a frontside 360, cab 360, and an air to fakie to finish. Ty couldn’t be any happier: “I’m really happy to win the Halfpipe event for the first time. I try to progress from year to year and I keep pushing myself.”

But that wasn’t all for the young American, she also placed second in today’s Slopestyle qualification, behind Isabel Derungs from Switzerland.
