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

Despite the calendar turning to spring, the European Alps have remained firmly under winter’s spell. This has caused problems for late-season competitions in the region, 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.

Although the big air finals had to be cancelled, results were still awarded in most of the competitions that were part of the Livigno 2024 FIS Park & Pipe Junior World Championships. The slopestyle finals took place as scheduled on Wednesday, while the snowboard big air podiums were determined based on qualification results leading up to the cancelled finals session on Saturday. Unfortunately, the women’s freeski big air competition had to be scrapped entirely due to weather conditions.

In snowboarding events, 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 followed by Romain Allemand of France with silver and Rocco Jamieson of New Zealand securing bronze medal. Despite facing tough weather conditions during competition season, athletes displayed their skills and determination in overcoming adversity.
