The Sochi Olympian, who has been competing internationally since he was 15-years-old, has been focussing on his skiing in the lead up to the event, spending a week in Utah before arriving in Colorado.
“I spent a week in Park City skiing and then drove over to Breckenridge/Keystone and skied there from the first of January,” he said.
“Training both before and after Font Romeu has been great! I feel really good and I’m just hoping for good weather for the event here in Snowmass.
“The first day of training was excellent, I figured out my jump run and also worked on a few options for the rails.
“The second training session wasn’t so great, we had a little rain the night before and snowboarders were on the course beforehand, meaning it was a little beat up.
“Also, the wind progressively got worse as the session went on, so I wasn’t too productive on the jumps but did have a good time on the rails!”
The last time Henshaw hit the hill for a World Cup was in Font Romeu, France however a combination of poor conditions during training and a head cold saw the 27-year-old finish in 55th place.
Nevertheless, the 2017 Slopestyle Skiing World Cup bronze medallist isn’t letting that get to him as he heads into this week’s World Cup, which also doubles as an Olympic Games qualifier.
“I feel good now,” he said.
“Body is feeling great and the course here is good so all that we need now is some good weather!”
Henshaw will be joined by fellow Aussies Nic Stevens and Ryley Lucas when qualifications kick off on Thursday 11th January.
