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

Harsh winter conditions halt big air finals at Livigno 2024 FIS Junior World Championships

Despite the arrival of spring, the European Alps remain firmly under winter’s grip. This has led to unfavorable conditions for late-season competitions taking place in the region following the end of the World Cup season. One such event that was affected by this inclement weather was the Livigno 2024 FIS Park & Pipe Junior World Championships for slopestyle and big air.

The competitions in Livigno saw some harsh weather conditions throughout the week, culminating in the cancellation of the big air finals on Saturday due to unsafe competition conditions. However, most of the scheduled competitions were able to award results, with slopestyle finals taking place on Wednesday. Snowboard big air podiums were awarded based on qualification results from earlier rounds, and women’s freeski big air finals were able to be held in full.

Unfortunately, the men’s freeski big air competition could not be completed due to the weather preventing any phases of the competition from taking place. In the snowboarding events, Laura Zaveska of Czechia claimed the gold medal in the slopestyle competition, followed by Yura Murase of Japan with silver and Rebecca Flynn of the USA with bronze. In
