Currently ranked seventh in the world and trailing the World Cup Slopestyle Skiing leader Andri Ragettli by 42 points, Henshaw has already collected one bronze medal this season in Seiser Alm, Italy.
He will be looking to qualify this afternoon (Friday 3 March), skiing in Heat 2 and hoping the weather is favourable after the many harsh conditions that have dogged the Slopestyle events this season.
After months of creative planning, tons of snow have been moved in and around Snowpark Corvatsch these past weeks in readiness for a big weekend with over 130 athletes in the best-of-two qualification runs. Finals will go down on Saturday evening (AEDT).
The Slopestyle World Championships will be held in Sierra Nevada, Spain on March 17.
