    Snowsports CEO Nic Cavanagh believes youngster Cool Wakushima is one to keep an eye on at the Snowboarding World Champs in Aspen this weekend.

    Snowsports CEO Nic Cavanagh believes youngster Cool Wakushima is one to keep an eye on at the Snowboarding World Champs in Aspen this weekend.


    The 18 year old won a gold and silver at the US Revolution Tour last week and has qualified eighth for Saturday's final in the slopestyle.

    Cavanagh says Wakushima is quickly working her way up the ranks.



    Zoi Sadowski Synott topped the qualifiers with Nico Porteous qualifying fourth for the men's halfpipe final.
