Women's Ski Slopestyle

Canadian Kaya Turski was back in familiar territory Sunday with her fourth career X Games Aspen gold medal in women's Ski Slopestyle.

Turski beat 15-year-old X Games rookie and silver medalist Maggie Voisin, now the youngest skier in history to medal at X Games, a distinction previously held by Aspen local Torin Yater-Wallace. Canadian Kim Lamarre took bronze.

"It's been a crazy week. It's been a crazy journey," Turski said about her first major contest after getting a revolutionary ACL surgery in August. "I couldn't believe it when I blew my knee five months ago, but here I am. I just tried to keep everything clean, just get my flow back, get it back in the zone, and it paid off."

The win follows her X Games Tignes 2013 Slopestyle gold and is a return to form for Turski, who dominated the event at X Games Aspen from 2010 to 2012 before taking silver in 2013 behind Norway's Tiril Sjåstad Christiansen, who is currently out of contention with a knee injury.
