Sunday's final cancelled due to high winds in Utah; American Chris Corning wins gold
Canadian snowboard star Mark McMorris won the silver medal in slopestyle at the freestyle ski and snowboard world championships without competing in Sunday's final.
Organizers of the event said on Twitter that the slopestyle final was cancelled "due to unsafe wind conditions." Medals were handed out based on competitors' qualifying scores instead.
McMorris earned the silver with his second-place qualifying run from Saturday.
