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

Despite the calendar showing spring has arrived two weeks ago, winter still holds a tight grip on the European Alps. This has caused problems for late-season competitions scheduled in the region after the conclusion of the World Cup season. One such event that was affected was 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 Livigna 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 men’s freeski big air competition had to be scrapped entirely due to bad 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 difficulties posed by adverse weather conditions. The athletes displayed their skills and determination in spite of these challenges.
