STONEHAM, Quebec — Canada's Michael Ciccarelli won first slopestyle title Saturday in the FIS Snowboard World Cup tour opener.

The 18-year-old Ciccarelli had a winning score of 95.50.

"It's been a long time coming," Ciccarelli said. "I've been working pretty hard to get tricks down. It felt good to go clean through the whole course today. After the first run I knew there was still room for some improvement."
