Emma Dahlstrom has been one of the most consistent riders on the FIS Freeski World Cup tour for a couple of years now, regularly landing on the podium since her second place at the Breckenridge slopestyle World Cup back in 2014. Entering 2017/2018 season the 25-year-old freeskier from Torsby has already on her account 14 World Cup podiums including 5 victories on just 21 starts.
And while she won the 2015 slopestyle crystal globe, most of her best results came last season, when Dahlstrom along with her swedish teammate Henrik Harlaut dominated the big air scene.
Dahlstrom came charging out of the gates at the season-opener in El Colorado, showing no rust at the season’s first competition despite the early-September start at the South American venue.
The road to the globe was a though one thought as Italy’s Silvia Bertagna stepped up to take the Super Series title with a win in Moenchengladbach and fourth-place finishes in the other two events, leading to a season-ending showdown in Voss-Myrkdalen.
Dahlstrom was up to the challenge in Voss, claiming victory in both of the back-to-back competitions to complete the crystal globe sweep for Sweden, and thus adding another piece of silverware to her collection after she finished with a silver medal at 2017 World Championships in Sierra Nevada just a couple of days before.
