Shaun White's equipment leads him to be a fairly tough opponent.

After completing all his challenges, mountain challenges and ultimate challenges (long road, I know) on EVERY mountain, you can meet him at his Alaskan hideout (Warp to the heli nearest his face, walk up the mountain a bit, you must have been there before).

The challenge is on the natural halfpipe, a rather tricky one to navigate in comparison to all others you've seen so far. SW scores fairly high, and you may feel that you'll never beat him at first, but trust me, you'll get lucky or get better.

Try using the Pink/Blue board, and go for spins, tweaked grabs and perfect landings. Flips don't score you enough, and you need to ensure you don't bail as to keep your multiplier up.

Most of the time he will score 20-30k so this is where you should aim for. But 1/4 attempts (roughly) he really messes up. I've seen him get as low as 10K (bare minimum for you to beat) and even go out of bounds, causing him to not finish. Keep at it, aiming for 20k (it's possible to get 40K+ if you're good) and eventually you'll get through this. Just don't quit, persist and you'll get there. Really is a frustrating achievement when he beats you by 100 points.

After beating him you get his board (Operator) and you can see why he scores so high.

(For extra points, anyone know what Y.T.M.N.D stands for? My best guess is "You're The Man Now, Dog" :p )
