FREESTYLE SKIING Preview: Ski Cross finally underway, lands in Innichen

After the weather canceled two events and moved the date on a third (Arosa, noted below), a regularly-scheduled event is getting set in Innichen (ITA). Competitions will be held on Friday and Saturday for men and women.

The top racers from 2017-18 were Marc Bischofberger (SUI), Jean-Frederic Chapuis (FRA) and Kevin Drury (CAN), but Jonas Lenherr (SUI), Victor Norberg (SWE) and Alex Fiva (SUI) took the medals in the season opener in Arosa (SUI).

Among the women, Swiss Fanny Smith won in Arosa, followed by perennial star Sandra Naeslund (SWE) and Canada’s Marielle Thompson. Last season, it was Naeslund, Smith and Brittany Phelan (CAN) who won the medals in Arosa.
