Her fellow Australian Institute of Sport / Victorian Institute of Sport scholarship holder, Danielle Scott, finished in career best fourth place after making it all the way to the final round of four competitors.
In a mixed event for the Australians, 2010 Olympic champion Lydia Lassila had a tough day to place eighth. Sam Wells made it through to her first final 12 of the season but could go no further, finishing 12th.
In the men’s competition, David Morris finished 15th in his opening jump in the qualifying round missing finals.
The second placing was Peel’s first podium finish for the season.
She tried a new routine for her final jump – a full, double full (triple twisting double somersault) - but did not square up quickly enough on landing and lost valuable points.
Peel said after the event: “I was really pleased to land some clean jumps and do Full double Full in competition. It is only the fourth I have performed on snow, so to be second tonight, I am really happy.”
“It was great to have four of us (Australians) in the final 12 and even better to have both Dani and I in the last four.”
"I'm looking forward to the next round in Sochi on the 2014 Olympic site."
The season’s dominant aerialist, China’s Mengtao Xu, recorded her fourth win from five starts this season.
