A hugely exciting venue to be added to the FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup circuit in 2016/17 was China's Thaiwoo Resort, future home of Nordic events for the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games and a cutting-edge stop on the freestyle World Cup tour as China becomes a bigger and bigger skiing market. After successful competitions in moguls and dual moguls last season, Thaiwoo is back again in 2017/18 to host a pair of moguls World Cup competitions.
The second day of the Thaiwoo (CHN) moguls World Cup went in the books on Friday with Yulia Galysheva (KAZ) stepping it up for top spot in the ladies’ competition and Mikael Kingsbury (CAN) taking care of business on the men’s side with back-to-back victories in China for the second year in a row.
