Final[edit]

The final took place on the evening of February 12, with Janne Lahtela, the second-best qualifier, just beating top qualifier Travis Mayer for the gold medal. The final wasn't without controversy however as Moseley's "dinner roll" was scored as a 360 with a break of form. Following the event FIS updated its scoring system making changes which if done earlier would have resulted in Moseley winning the gold medal.
