Jennifer Hudak, a resident of Park City, has the halfpipe skiing event in the Sprint U.S. Freestyle Championships figured out.

David Wise of Caldwell, Idaho, won the men's title.

On Friday, under near ideal conditions, Hudak won her third U.S. title.

She described her run as starting with a straight air mute grab, then going to a straight air with a critical, mute, alley-oop, seven to take the top podium spot.

Judges rated her maneuvers in the Park City Mountain Resort's Superpipe well above those of the other competitors. She scored a 34.2. Runner-up Gina Gmeiner of Steamboat Springs, Colo., scored a 30.3, and Jessica Cumming of Wilton, Conn., finished third with a 28.6.

"The pipe was really good today. I took a rough spill this morning on one run and it kind of threw me off, but I did what I had to do in finals and it was a good day," Hudak said.

"I'm really happy with the final result. This is my third year winning the event, and I'd like to keep it that way for many years to come."

Back in mid-March, Hudak won a World Cup skiing event in Italy.

Originally from Connecticut, Hudak started freestyle skiing at Okemo Mountain in Vermont. She works out of the Aspen Valley Ski Club, but lives in Park City.

Finishing second in the men's event was Walter Wood of Evergreen, Colo., and third was Kyle Smaine of South Lake Tahoe, Calif. Wise scored a 48.4 with the judges and Wood a 45.2.

Halfpipe skiing is not yet an Olympic event.

The last two events in the championships will be the moguls today at Deer Valley, followed by dual moguls on Sunday. The men's finals today will start at 2:15 p.m., followed by the women's event. Sunday's events will begin at 2:45 p.m.
