Brooke Voigt was just 16 years old when she not only competed at her first World Cup slopestyle event, but won a silver medal in Calgary in January 2010. She also reached the podium in her next two World Cup events, winning silver again in Calgary in February 2011 and in Stoneham, Quebec in February 2012. It was also in 2012 that she finished in the top-10 at the FIS World Junior Championships in slopestyle. She made her FIS World Championship debut a year later. In her third worlds appearance in 2017, she placed an impressive seventh in slopestyle.
Voigt’s big air breakthrough came at a World Cup event held at Boston’s Fenway Park in February 2016 when she won bronze. Among her 2016-17 season highlights were a top-10 finish at the big air Olympic test event in PyeongChang and a World Cup slopestyle bronze at a highly competitive event in Quebec City where she landed a run she’d been wanting to do for a while. She ended the season with a second-place finish at a World Snowboard Tour event in Andorra.
