Trace Cooke finishes ninth at Freeride World Tour event

Result leaves Nelson native on the outside of qualifying for next event.

Nelson's Trace Cooke is ranked 15th through the first three events of the Freeride World Tour season.

Trace Cooke’s rookie season on the Freeride World Tour appears to be over.

Cooke finished ninth Wednesday at the Tour’s Fieberbrunn Kitzbuheler Alpen event in Austria. The result, which scored him 1,190 points, was Cooke’s best of the season.

The Nelson native previously finished 17th at Vallnord-Arcalis, Andorra, in January and 16th at Chamonix, France, in February.

Cooke is currently ranked 15th on the Tour. Only the top 14 skiers, however, move on to the next event in Haines, Alaska, later this month. The fifth and final Tour event runs in Verbier, Switzerland, in April.
