UPDATE Julia Marino, 18, of Westport tonight took home first place in the women’s Big Air At Fenway snowboard finals in Boston’s Fenway Park. The home of the Red Sox was transformed into a snowboard winter wonderland with a 140-foot tall, 430-foot long man-made snow-covered ramp and landing zone covering the area from center field to home plate. More than 75 athletes from 25 countries competed in men’s and women’s snowboarding and freeskiing, part of an attempt to bring the sport down from the mountain and into cities where more people can enjoy it. It gave U.S. fans a chance to get more familiar with big air before it enters the Winter Olympics in 2018 in South Korea.  Moreno is a 2018 Olympic hopeful. Contributed photo
