The VIS skier made a strong start to the event, qualifying in second place for the final with a 88.20 full-full jump, but unfortunatley missed her landing in the final to finish in 11th place.
Peel said she was disappointed to not put down the jump she'd hoped for in the finals.
“I am a bit disappointed about the result. I jumped well in qualifications, but unfortunately had a bit of trouble landing in finals," she said.
Abbey Willcox recorded a personal best World Cup finish of 13th, narrowly missing out on qualifying for the 12-woman final after scoring 75.98 on her lay-full jump.
OWIA Apprentice Coach David Morris was satisfied with solid performances by the pair considering their preparation.
“Laura and Abbey both jumped very well given they had very little training leading into the competition day.
"As a coaching group we are very impressed they were able to perform so well after being sick leading into the event,” he said.
Also in Minsk, a syncro team event was held, with the team of Peel and Willcox finishing in third place after competing their lay-full jump at the same time off different jumps.
The Flying Kangaroos Australian Aerial Ski Team now head to China, for the final World Cup event of the year on March 2nd.
