Natural Selection returned to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort for a second year of big tricks, high stoke and hard-fought competition among some of the best snowboarders from around the world.

The two-day event took place on the Moran Faces of JHMR, which have been closed to the public all season allowing staff time to build substantial features into the already gnarly terrain.

On Friday, Sage Kotsenburg and ​Elena Hight defeated their competition, winning Natural Selection.
