Val Saint-Come FIS Freestyle World Cup Preview: Jeremy Cota Returns to Competition

Bomber Ski athlete Jeremy Cota, Team USA's no. 1 mogul skier, will return to competition on Saturday in Val Saint-Come after the previously scheduled World Cup in Lake Louise was canceled due to lack of snow.

Cota, who stood on the podium at last year's Tazawako World Cup in Japan, finished his season 7th in the world. After skiing so hard he broke his pole in Ruka, Finland, the 27-year-old enters Val Saint-Come a stealth competitor, taking on World Cup leader Mikael Kingsbury of Canada, Benjamin Cavet of France and Japan's Ikuma Horishima for a spot on the podium. He will have a second chance to reclaim his spot near the top the following week in Calgary. See full schedule. 

You can watch Jeremy compete live thanks to NBC Live Extra, which will stream both events.
