Baden’s world tour rolls on

Steamboat Springs snowboarder Nik Baden flies high while preparing for an event earlier this year. Baden is fresh off a fifth-place finish at a big event in Andorra and earlier this season competed in China and Norway.

— Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club slopestyle snowboarder Nik Baden has continued to post strong results in what’s been a big season.

His success has given him plenty of chance to see the world, too.

Most recently, he touched down in the tiny nation of Andorra, in the Pyrenees Mountains, between Spain and France. He competed at the Grandvalira Total Fight 2016 event and notched one of his best career results, a fifth-place finish.

Canadian Max Parrot, a three-time X Games gold medalist and 2014 Winter Olympian, won with a score of 89.33. Baden wasn’t far back at 81.33.

Baden also competed earlier this month in Yabuli, Heilongjiang, China, at the World Championships of Snowboarding. There, he was 10th in the finals.

That’s all after a medal-winning trip to Norway in February.
