Norwegian Marcus Kleveland and Japan's Reira Iwabuchi concluded the Snowboard World Cup in style as they triumphed in the slopestyle competitions in Silvaplana.
Reigning slopestyle world champion Kleveland continued his impressive run of results by topping the podium in the men's competition with a huge first run score.
His commanding 96.00 was never likely to be beaten and so it proved as Canadian Liam Brearley provided his nearest challenge, finishing second with a score of 89.00.
