It was an awesome event and I am so happy that the U.S. Grand Prix is here to help us show the world what our sport is about, it sets a good precedence for the next events that we do leading up to Sochi in 2014. I can't wait!"
It was Wallisch's 5th podium of this season and 4th first place. Devon Logan (West Dover, VT) took second in women's slopestyle. Logan notched her fourth-straight podium of this season.

"My season so far has been great and I am extremely excited with how everything is going," Kaya Turski said. "I'm just trying to keep it clean and solid and work on some new tricks and Devin and Anna, a lot of girls really, are stepping it up, it's really cool to come out on top. It makes me proud! The course at the Visa U.S. Grand Prix was really nice, I am proud to have Mammoth as my home mountain and it's great that I can be here to represent."
