British athletes return to the World Cup stage for the first time this season, as World Cup competitions are set for Chur, Switzerland, and Soelden, Austria
In Chur, the Big Air World Cup gets underway Friday-Saturday, with British athletes in both the Freeski and Freestyle Snowboard line-ups. In Freeski, Beijing Winter Olympian Kirsty Muir will be joined by Chris McCormick, while the Freestyle Snowboard competition will see Maisie Hill, Billy Cockrell and, on her World Cup debut, Mia Brookes line up to represent British interests.
Saturday-Sunday, meanwhile, will see Alex Tilley and Charlie Raposo line up in Soelden for the first Alpine World Cup meet of the season. For Tilley, the race marks a return to the site of her equal career-best World Cup performance, the 13th placed finish she secured 12 months ago. In the men’s GS, Raposo will be looking to build on a promising end to the 2022-23 season which saw him secure consecutive top-30 finishes in Kranjskar Gora, including a career-best 16th place in his last World Cup race before this weekend.
