It was a jam-packed weekend of high-performance sport around the world, including gold-medal performances by Canadians in big air snowboarding, short track speed skating and ski cross.
Those victories have helped Canada's winter athletes record 87 podium finishes this season as we head into the holiday break.
Here's a look at what you may have missed.
Snowboarder is stoked
Canadians Max Parrot and Sebastien Toutant finished 1-2 on Saturday in the World Cup big air snowboard event at Copper Mountain.

It's Parrot's first gold medal of the season after back-to-back silvers at a World Cup event in South Korea and a Dew Tour stop in Colorado.
"It's been three podiums in a row, now I've got my first first place of the season and I end the year really well, so I'm really stoked," Parrot said.
Thompson on top
Marielle Thompson is on a roll and can't be stopped. The defending Olympic champion in ski cross soared to another World Cup win in Austria this weekend.

Canada's men's bobsleigh team took half of all the medals up for grabs this weekend in Lake Placid, N.Y. Chris Spring and Justin Kripps scored silver and bronze, respectively, in the two-man event:

It's the first World Cup super-G medal for Guay since 2010, and it came at the same venue.
"Val Gardena has always been good to me," said Guay, who is regaining his form following his sixth knee surgery. "A lot of times when I ski super-G I don't push as hard to the limits as I should but today I skied to the edge, no mistakes, clean run and I'm very happy."
Canadians soar to silver
Catrine Lavallée, Travis Gerrits and Lewis Irving capped off the weekend by winning silver for Canada in Sunday's World Cup aerials team event in Beida Lake, China.
