Maddie Bowman of the United States won the women's ski superpipe competition with 91.33 points.

Groenewoud also has won the 2011 FIS World Championship in Park City, Utah in her specialty, the women's ski halfpipe, which will be making its Olympic debut at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.
Gunning meanwhile has rebounded nicely after tearing her ACL in 2011.
