Braving the Storm: The Livigno 2024 FIS Park & Pipe Junior World Championships in the Amidst Winter’s Grip

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

The Livigno 2024 FIS Park & Pipe Junior World Championships for slopestyle and big air were held in the European Alps, despite winter still holding a firm grip on the region. However, this did not deter the competitors from braving the elements and showcasing their talent and determination during the event.

Despite some harsh weather conditions throughout the week, most of the scheduled competitions were able to award results. The snowboard big air podiums were awarded based on qualification results from earlier rounds, while women’s freeski big air finals were held in full. Unfortunately, the men’s freeski big air competition could not be completed due to weather preventing any phases of the competition from taking place.

In snowboarding events, Laura Zaveska of Czechia claimed the gold medal in slopestyle, with Yura Murase of Japan securing silver and Rebecca Flynn of the USA earning bronze. In men’s slopestyle, Brooklyn Depriest of New Zealand took home the gold medal, followed by Romain Allemand of France with silver and Rocco Jamieson of New Zealand earning bronze.

Despite these challenges posed by lingering winter conditions in the European Alps, the Livigno 2024 FIS Park & Pipe Junior World Championships were able to showcase an impressive display of talent and determination among its competitors.
