Brooklyn DePriest stands atop the podium at the Junior World Championships.

Hydro Flask U.S. Snowboard Team’s Brooklyn DePriest won the gold medal and Rebecca Flynn bronze at the 2024 FIS Slopestyle and Big Air Junior World Championships in Livigno/Mottolino, Italy.

Officials were forced to run the second two heats of men’s slopestyle qualifications immediately before finals due to gusty winds on Monday. It was a busy day for DePriest, who had to first qualify to join Ski & Snowboard Club Vail’s Caleb Dhawornvej in the slopestyle final. Dhawornvej qualified from heat one on Monday before the event was postponed.

DePriest sat in fourth overall after an impressive qualifying performance, but kicked into another gear in the round of finals, putting up a massive score of 91.00 on his first run that ultimately won him the slopestyle title at the 2026 Olympic venue. DePriest was the only competitor of the day to crack into the 90s. Dhawornvej finished 15th overall.

Traveling straight from Silvaplana after qualifying for her first World Cup final, Flynn continued to show her young potential, finishing third overall on the women’s side of slopestyle competition to clinch the bronze medal. Ski & Snowboard Club Vail’s Lily Dhawornvej put down an impressive performance of her own, finishing fifth overall.

The squad shifts its focus to big air competition at Junior Worlds, with both men’s and women’s qualifications slated for Thursday, March 28.
