FIS WC Big Air | El Colorado, Chile


The first comp of the season is now done! We came to Chile with the Swedish Team two days before the practice started and we got to feel the snow just a little before it was time to hit the Big Air jump. As we were so few girls our qualification got cancelled and we went straight to finals = we got an extra day of practice (which it turned out I really needed). I felt to rusty the first few days back on snow, hadn’t really been hitting any big jumps since April and it took quite a few jumps before I started to get the feeling back.

During the comp it was the two best tricks out of three jumps that counted. I started with doing a cork 720 tail and got 76.20. On my 2nd run I did a switch 540 high safety that I felt very pleased with, and it scored great, 84.80. On my final and 3rd run I redid my cork 720 tail, didn’t get it perfect but increased my score just a little, 79.00. This gave me a total score of 163.80, and it was enough to give me the win, woohoo!

Incredibly happy to’ve been able to start the season like this! As I mentioned it’s always hard for me to get the feeling back, but this comp made me get back faster than ever before. Maybe this is the way to do it? Hi snow, hi competition.

1. Emma Dahlström – 163.80
2. Giulia Tanno – 156.20
3. Melani Kraizel – 141.20
