The two-time World Championship medallist competed triple back somersaults for the first time this season, scoring 88.66 points in the first round of finals with her lay-tuck-full-jump to advance to the super-final in third place.
Scott then increased her degree of difficulty in the medal round, performing a lay-full-full, double twisting triple back somersault to score a massive 115.20 points, the highest scoring women’s jump of the season and the best of her career to claim her second victory of the season and seventh in her career.
Second place went to Canadian Marion Thenault who scored 97.99 points, with Chinese skier Fanyu Kong rounding out the podium in third with 94.11 points.
“I am lost for words actually, I am so pumped” said the 32-year-old three-time Olympian from NSW, who now trains in Brisbane at the Geoff Henke Olympic Winter Training Centre water jump facility.
“Everything went to plan, and to finally be doing triples again, it just feels so awesome, and I can’t wait for more girls to be doing them.”
“I am looking forward to the World Championships, got to keep building, I have a bit more degree of difficulty in the bag, and have to keep doing jumps like this.”
Two-time World Champion Laura Peel earlier qualified for finals in second place, but unfortunately was unable to land her lay-full-full triple back somersault in the first round of finals finishing in eighth place.
Also in action for Australia was Airleigh Frigo, who finished in 17th place during the qualification round.
The victory sees Scott move into first place on the World Cup standings with two events remaining for the season in March. Scott leads with 282 points, seven points clear of Canadian Thenault on 275, with Peel in third place with 182.
The aerial skiing athletes will now set their sights to the FIS World Championships in Bakuriani, Georgia, on February 21-22, with the mogul skiers back competing tomorrow in the dual moguls event in Deer Valley.
