Townshend, Andrews Silver at Junior World Championships

Eleanor Andrews secures a silver medal at Junior Worlds.

Stifel U.S. Freeski Team rookie Henry Townshend and Killington Mountain School's Eleanor Andrews took home silver medals in slopestyle competition at the 2024 FIS Slopestyle and Big Air Junior World Championships.

Due to weather concerns, officials were forced to hold finals in a double-up format and leave out scoring the final jump due to gusty winds making the course unsafe for competitors.

Townshend showed composure in the difficult weather conditions and immediately set himself up for a podium position with a first run score of 89.00. Norway’s Frank Wahlstroem was the only competitor to top the young American's score, securing Townshend a second place finish and cementing the young American as one to watch on the freeski World Cup circuit over the next few years.

After landing on the podium in her first World Cup appearance in February’s Toyota U.S. Grand Prix in Mammoth Mountain, Andrews continued her successful season with a second place performance in the women’s slopestyle. Stifel U.S. Freeski Team rookie Kate Gray finished just off the podium in fourth.

Qualifications for the Junior Worlds big air are set to drop Friday, March 29.
