Canadian snowboarders found the air above and inside Boston's Fenway Park to their liking with four World Cup medals Thursday night, led by a 1-2 finish by Max Parrot and Michael Ciccarelli.

In the first two competitive events inside the oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball, Canada also finished second, third and fourth in the ladies' big air as Jenna Blasman, Brooke Voigt and Spencer O'Brien followed the winning form of Julia Marino of the United States who totalled 169.25 points.

Parrot led the men with 183.50 from two jumps, followed by Ciccarelli with 174.00 and American Charles Guldemono with 156.50.

Freestyle skiers will also compete on the specially constructed ramp that dwarfs Fenway's famous 37-foot high Green Monster.
