KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -- Dara Howell continued Canada's dominance at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park, soaring to Olympic gold in women's slopestyle skiing on Tuesday.

Howell posted a score of 94.20 during her first run of the finals, trouncing the rest of the field on a warm and sometimes frightening day down the slushy slopestyle course.

Devin Logan of the U.S. took silver. Canadian Kim Lamarre earned bronze.

Canada has claimed seven medals in four days of snowboarding and freestyle skiing, including three events in which they took two of the three spots on the podium.

Howell's triumph was tempered by a series of scary crashes, including one by teammate Yuki Tsubota that ended with Tsubota being carried of the mountain on a stretcher.
