Maggie Voisin’s Ski Slopestyle Win In Mammoth Puts Her One Step Closer To PyeongChang Olympics

(L-R) Johanne Killi of Norway, Maggie Voisin and Mathilde Gremaud of Switzerland celebrate at the FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup 2017 women's ski slopestyle at the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain on Feb. 5, 2017 in Mammoth, California.

Maggie Voisin earned her first world cup victory Sunday afternoon in ski slopestyle at the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain, California.

As one of six events designated for qualifying for the 2018 U.S. Olympic Team, the result puts Voisin a step closer to earning an automatic selection to her first Olympic team. Up to three men’s and women’s slopestyle athletes who have two podium results in any of the selection events – the bulk of which will take place next season – will earn automatic selection to the team for PyeongChang.

The silver medalist at the 2014 X Games Aspen, the 18-year-old from Whitefish, Montana, had been named to the 2014 Olympic team, but a broken leg prevented her from competing. She would have been the youngest American to compete at a Winter Games since 1972.

Voisin achieved the victory Sunday, her third career world cup podium, with a score of 91.40, 1.40 points ahead of Switzerland’s Mathilde Gremaud, who was second with a 90.00. Johanne Killi of Norway rounded out the podium at 88.80.

Team USA had four skiers in the top 10, with 2014 Olympic silver medalist Devin Logan and Darian Stevens at fourth and fifth, while Taylor Lundquist was seventh.

The men’s competition was canceled due to the high winds and driving snow seen all week.
