The final event of the Cardrona 2023 FIS Park & Pipe Junior World Championships took to the big air venue on Monday, where near-perfect conditions and one of the best big air jumps in the world allowed the best young freeskiers in the world to put on a explosive showcase, with Italy’s Flora Tabanelli and Leo Landroe of Norway leading the way with gold medal wins.

The Cardrona 2023 slopestyle silver medallist from last week, 15-year-old Tabanelli stepped things up a notch for the big air competition, leading qualifications before locking things down in finals, stomping a switch left bio 900 mute and a left double cork 1080 safety for a two-jump score of 177.50 – becoming Italy’s first snowboard Park & Pipe Junior World Champion in the process.

Behind Tabanelli on the junior women’s side were a pair of Chinese skiers, with Han Linshan and Yang Ruyi claiming the silver and bronze medals, respective.

For Han it was a two jump combo of a left double cork 1080 mute and a switch left 900 mute that would give her a combined score of 168.75 for the silver medal, while her compatriot Yang earned bronze with a score of 160.00 for a switch left 1080 mute and a left corked 900 tail.
