Winter X Games: Truckee’s Kimmy Fasani advances to slopestyle final

ASPEN ” Truckee High grad Kimmy Fasani was one of six riders to advance to Saturday’s women’s snowboard slopestyle final at the Winter X Games at Buttermilk after Friday’s two-run elimination round.

Fasani, who now rides out of Mammoth, earned a score of 63.66. Jenny Jones of Bristol, Great Britain took the top spot with 84.33 points. Bev Vuilleumier of Incline Village placed eighth in the elimination round, scoring 42.66 points.
