Second place for the women went to Karker’s Canadian teammate Amy Fraser, as the 27-year-old hit a career milestone with her first World Cup podium.

Amy Fraser has been progressing in leaps and bounds since her World Cup debut in the 2019/20 season, and on Saturday at Copper that was on full display as she started things off with a switch right 540, into a switch left 540, and then a switch right 720 Japan, a left flair safety, a right corked 900 and finally a left corked 900 to finish things off with a score 85.25.

Third place for the women belonged to Kelly Sildaru of Estonia, who was once again her consistent and technical self while earning a score of 82.00. Beginning her run with a right side 900, Kelly Sidaru then went left 540 tail grab, left alley-oop 540 tail, right alley-oop 540 tail, right 720 tail, switch left 720 tail, and finally, squeezing one more hit out of the pipe, a switch right 540 Japan.
