BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. -- Edmonton's Mike Riddle took second place in ski halfpipe Sunday at the U.S. Grand Prix.

Riddle scored 85.2 points, 3.8 points behind American David Wise who finished first on a snowy day that made the halfpipe a little slower than usual.

Justin Dorey of Calgary was sixth with 76.4 points while Vancouver's Simon d'Artois placed seventh with 74.4.

On the women's side, Maddie Bowman had a solid first run to hold off Ayana Onozuka of Japan. Calgary's Megan Gunning was the top Canadian with 78.66 points, good for ninth place.

The event organizers were able to stage the ski halfpipe event despite the snowy conditions. High wind led officials to cancel snowboard slopestyle and halfpipe events on Saturday.
