Canada's Dara Howell added to Canada's medal count on Tuesday winning a gold medal at the ski slopestyle final. Teammate Kim Lamarre added another medal for Canada taking the bronze in the event with a score of 85.00.

Hunstville, Ont.'s Howell took the lead scoring a 94.20 in her second run and hung on on for the medal.

America's Devin Logan trailed well back in second place at 85.40.

Both Canadians paid tribute to Sarah Burke, a pioneer in freestyle skiing who died two years ago in a training accident.

"I said earlier this week that I hope maybe a Canadian can bring home a gold medal and it'll definitely be for Sarah," Howell said at a press conference.

Bronze medalist Lamarre said that it was Burke's memory that helped her recompose herself before her final run. “I fell on my first run in finals and right before I [started the second run] I looked up and I said ‘Sarah let’s do this together.’"

Canada's Kaya Turski, a favourite for the event who battled injuries in the last year, did not qualify for the final of the event.

Yuki Tsubota, another Canadian in the event, suffered a bad fall in the final and had to be taken off in a stretcher. Media reports indicate that she may have broken her jaw in the fall. See it below:

Many skiers struggled with the conditions at the venue on Tuesday. Warm weather made for slushy, dangerous runs at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.

Howell and Lamarre's medals bump Canada's medal tally to nine, with seven of them coming at the hills of Rosa Khutor. Snowboarder Mark McMorris won bronze, Canada's first medal of these games. While the Dufour-Lapointe sisters and teammates Alexandre Bilodeau and Mikael Kingsbury took a pair of silvers and golds in moguls for Team Canada.
