"Calgary is the best World Cup for me all over the world so far," Kingsbury said. "I feel like home everywhere in Canada. For sure. I can't wait to ski in Quebec, but this year the course was awesome. I felt very confident today. That's the biggest point. I felt very good and in very good shape. It's looking good for Sochi."
Dufour-Lapointe finished at 78.53.
"Today, the good thing is I went fast and did clean jumps and that's how I win," Justine Dufour-Lapointe said. "To win a gold medal at home, it's incredible."
Olympic champion Hannah Kearney of the United States was second in 77.63, and Dufour-Lapointe's sister, Chloe, was third at 74.83. A third Dufour-Lapointe sister, Maxime, was fifth.

"This was a great reminder that I can be beat, and by someone younger than me," said Kearney, from Norwich, Vt. "I've won on this course before, so even though I earned a podium, it's not what I was hoping for.
"It's motivation and at the same time it's a great feeling knowing that I'm in this position for the Olympics. I know I need to be tighter coming out of my bottom air and I'm going to focus on that going into Deer Valley and Lake Placid — two courses I feel confident with."
Deneen, from Cle Elum, Wash., has his first podium finish of the season.
"This was a tricky course and I honestly surprised myself with how consistently I was able to ski," Deneen said. "I've had difficulty on this course before, so that makes this podium that much better. I feel really confident looking toward Deer Valley and Lake Placid, both courses I've had a lot of success on."
