Yuki had an impressive score of 87.66 on her first attempt, completing two 720s and a backflip. On her final jump, she landed a 900 to secure her sixth placer standing.
"I was so stoked after my first run. I was just happy that I put down a run," said Tsubota, who had trouble with speed on the course in morning training, but enjoyed her first X Games experience overall. "It was incredible … the atmosphere is just so different than every other competition."
