Leysin has played host to some of the biggest junior-level competitions in the world over the past few seasons, including the halfpipe Junior World Championships back in 2018/19, and the  2020 Youth Olympic Winter Games two seasons ago. With an absolutely elite slopestyle/big air course and halfpipe both primed and ready to welcome the athletes, and near-perfect weather forecast for the duration of the JWCs, all the pieces are in place for a truly epic week to come in Switzerland.

As always, one of the most exciting aspects of the JWCs will be the combination of up-and-coming World Cup and Olympic athletes with those who are even greener, less experienced and hungry to make their mark on the world’s stage in the coming years.

With a new Olympic cycle just in its very earliest phase, many of the athletes we see dropping in on competition at Leysin 2022 are likely to be household names once the next Games roll around at Milan/Cortina 2026, and we can’t wait to see who breaks out and takes the next step towards stardom this week.
