Milan, Last Saturday the Freestyle ski ladies started their season competing at the Big Air of Milan. At the same location
where Anna Gasser won her first World Cup of the season last week, under the tree of life at the Expo Milano.
With some of the last year’s biggest players missing out at this year edition of ‘Big Air and the City’, a bunch of super talented up-and-comers were given an opportunity to rise and shine on the international stage. And they didn’t disappoint, showing that this season’s big air World Cup tour will be without a doubt the one to bring some fresh talents into the scene.
In the ladies’ competition it was Coline Ballet-Baz (FRA) who impressed the judges with her stylish and well-executed switch bio 900 safety and a 900 tail to take her very first World Cup victory as well as an early hold on the yellow World Cup leader bib.
“The level of the competition here was very high and I really was not expecting to go back home with the win”, said the French rider following the award ceremony. “I couldn’t have started the season in a better way and I’m just super happy with my performance tonight”.
Second place on the day went to last year’s slopestyle World Cup runner-up Johanne Killi (NOR) with Giulia Tanno (SUI) rounding out the podium on third.
And while Tanno started the competition by stomping the first ever forward double cork 1080 put down in a competition by a women, she couldn’t quite land her second trick clean and at the end she had to settle for a third place.
