Baird immediately put herself into contention after her first trick scored an 80 from the judges – the fourth highest score of the whole competition.

This is the first time Baird has won a World Cup medal since she claimed bronze in the Seiser Alm Slopestyle in 2019.

On the men’s side, Mark McMorris finished fifth in the Big Air final with a score of 101.25.
