|DAVOS, Switzerland (March 7) - The U.S. Ski Team's Emily Cook (Belmont, MA) came back from her first career win last weekend in Moscow to finish fourth in a World Cup aerial event in Davos. Thousands were on hand for the night event in the popular resort of Davos in eastern Switzerland.|
The World Cup coaches voted U.S. Ski Team aerialist Allison Treleaven (Fort Wayne, IN) as Rookie of the Year. Treleaven, a first year World Cup skier, was top-10 in her first career World Cup in Lake Placid in January. She also won the NorAm Cup aerial title.
"This is a great honor for Allison," said Christensen. "She did a fabulous job in her rookie season."
Davos was the final stop on the World Cup aerial circuit. Moguls skiers are back in action Saturday in Are, Sweden with a dual moguls event, with ski cross action in Meiringen-Hasliberg, Switzerland. The World Cup wraps up next week with moguls and ski cross in Valmalenco, Italy.
