At Sochi 2014 Yuki Tsubota was one of the Canadians to watch in the new Olympic event of ski slopestyle, having reached the podium in some of the world’s biggest competitions. Tsubota posted the fourth-highest score in the qualification round but in the second run of the Olympic final she crashed on the final jump. She had to be stretchered off the course and was taken to hospital where she was diagnosed with a concussion and a fractured cheek bone.

In April 2012 she won the bronze medal at the world championships presented by the Association of Freeskiing Professionals. In December 2012 she took the silver at the Dew Tour in Breckenridge, Colorado.

Tsubota competed at her first FIS World Championships in 2013, finishing fifth. She went on to finish fourth at the AFP World Championships a month later. Tsubota recorded her career-best result in FIS World Cup competition in March 2012 when she finished fifth at Mammoth Mountain, California.
