Swiss Freestyle Ski Cross star Fanny Smith

The Freestyle World Cup came to a close for the Big Air and Ski Cross disciplines over the weekend, and the U.S. championships were held in Moguls.

At Quebec City, the Big Air titles were decided. Swiss Andri Raggetli was the only skier to win medals in all three competitions this season and he was the easy winner, 220-172, over Norway’s Birk Ruud. The women’s Big Air title went to Elena Gaskell of Canada, who won the first event back in September and was third this time and held off Swiss Mathilde Gremaud, who won two of the three events, but fell short by 210-200.

In Veysonnaz (SUI), a major Ski Cross festival had the seasonal leaders finish the job and win the Ski Cross titles. France’s Bastien Midol won medals in eight of the 11 races, including three wins and that led him to a 756-572 win over teammate Jean Fredic Chapuis, the winner on Sunday. Switzerland’s Fanny Smith won six races this season and ended up with a 799-755 win over defending champ Sandra Naeslund (SWE), even though Naeslund finished second on Sunday and was first or second in four of her last five races.

In Waterville Valley, New Hampshire, Jesse Andringa and Jaelin Kauf dominated the U.S. Moguls Championships, winning both the Moguls title on Saturday and the Dual Moguls event on Sunday. Summaries:
