The Moguls European Cup concluded its season with the last two events taking place in Airolo and Megeve. While the world's elite freestyle skiers were competing for the prestigious globes in Almaty, Kazakhstan, the future stars of mogul skiing showcased their talents in France, marking the end of the 2023/24 European Cup season.

This season featured a dynamic six double-event series spanning across Duved, Sweden; Taivalkoski and Levi, Finland; Stockholm, Sweden; Airolo, Switzerland; and Megeve, France. It was an exhilarating season that offered emerging World Cup athletes ample opportunities to compete and shine.

As the moguls portion of the European Cup drew to a close, the overall winners of this year's tour were crowned, highlighting the exceptional talents and dedication of these young athletes.

On the women's side, Marie Duaux from France dominated the competition, securing victories in all three rankings - moguls, dual moguls, and overall moguls EC champion titles. Her impressive haul of seven victories and a total of ten top-3 finishes throughout the season amassed 952 points. This season marked a significant milestone for the 19-year-old French skier, who improved upon her fourth-place overall finish from the previous season.

Sweden's Nicolina Stenkula and Ellis Lundholm delivered strong performances to take second and third places, respectively, with 840 and 680 points. Stenkula achieved two victories and eight top-3 finishes, while Lundholm earned one win and six podium spots during the campaign.

In the men's competition, Finnish athlete Akseli Ahvenainen stood out with seven victories, two runner-up positions, and a total of 966 points, showcasing his dominance throughout the season.

The Swedish Moguls Team also made a significant impact on the men's side, with Karl Waerme finishing the season in second place with 591 points, thanks to his two wins and five podium finishes. Jakob Hansson Mathisen completed the podium in third place with 481 points. Despite only one podium finish, his consistent top-10 results throughout the year culminated in a well-deserved third place.

Additionally, this season's competition saw Sweden triumph in the Nations Cup, a testament to the country's depth of talent and commitment to mogul skiing. This accolade highlights the strength and consistency of the Swedish team across the board, further establishing Sweden as a powerhouse in the world of freestyle skiing.

The culmination of the Moguls European Cup not only showcased the immense talent and dedication of the athletes but also set the stage for the next chapter in their skiing careers. Winners of the overall moguls standings, Marie Duaux and Akseli Ahvenainen, have earned their spots to compete on the prestigious World Cup tour next season. This achievement marks a significant milestone in their careers, offering them the opportunity to test their skills against the world's best mogul skiers on an international platform. Their transition to the World Cup tour is eagerly anticipated, as they bring fresh talent and competitive spirit to the forefront of the sport.
