Junior World Championships conclude in Livigno amidst challenging weather for Big Air and Slopestyle events

Despite the calendar turning to spring, winter continues to hold strong in the European Alps. This has caused problems for late-season competitions scheduled in the region after the World Cup season, including the Livigno 2024 FIS Park & Pipe Junior World Championships for slopestyle and big air.

The competition faced rough weather conditions throughout the week, culminating in the cancellation of the big air finals on Saturday due to safety concerns. However, results were still awarded in most of the competitions that were part of the championships. The slopestyle finals took place as scheduled on Wednesday, while snowboard big air podiums were determined based on qualification results leading up to the cancelled finals session on Saturday. The women’s freeski big air finals were completed in full, but unfortunately, the men’s freeski big air competition had to be scrapped entirely due to weather conditions.

Despite these challenges, athletes displayed their skills and determination in all events held. Laura Zaveska of Czechia secured gold in slopestyle, with Yura Murase of Japan earning silver and Rebecca Flynn of USA taking home bronze. In men’s slopestyle competition, Brooklyn Depriest of USA claimed gold medal followed by Romain Allemand of France with silver and Rocco Jamieson of New Zealand securing bronze medal.
