Devin Logan has work ahead of her in ski halfpipe. She’s at the top of ski slopestyle, though.

Logan, who like Shaun White is trying to make the U.S. Olympic Team in two events, won ski slopestyle at the Dew Tour iON Mountain Championships on Saturday. The 20-year-old scored 87.80 in the first of her two runs, and it held up to top the eight-woman final in Breckenridge, Colo.

Logan finished sixth in the ski halfpipe final Friday, fourth among Americans. She now leads the Olympic selection standings after the first of five selection events.

“Helps me out, definitely,” Logan said. “We’ve got four more qualifications, though, so anything can happen.”

Canadian Kim Lamarre took second with 81.20, followed by qualifying leader American Maggie Voisin in third. Voisin turned 15 on Saturday.

Another American, Ashley Battersby, crashed hard during her second run and was taken off the course in a sled. Battersby was coming back from a knee injury suffered at the Winter X Games in January, where she placed fourth.

Battersby has had multiple ACL surgeries. The majority of women’s ski slopestyle stars worldwide have undergone major knee surgeries, including three-time X Games champion Kaya Turski, a Canadian who’s hoping to be ready for Sochi after her latest setback in August.

Logan, too, blew out one of her knees a year ago. She won slopestyle silver at the 2012 X Games.
