Valentino Guseli became Australia's first-ever overall International Ski and Snowboard Federation Snowboard big air World Cup winner at the final event of the season in the discipline in Kreischberg, with Japan's Reira Iwabuchi joining him as the first Crystal Globe winners of the year.

Japan enjoyed a podium sweep in the men's competition in the Austrian resort, led by Taiga Hasegawa with 186.00 points.

Ryoma Kimata placed second with 182.50, becoming the first athlete to land a backside 180 at a World Cup, while Kira Kimura took third with 181.75.

Guseli placed fourth with 180.00, which was enough to top the season's standings in the big air discipline with 214 points.

The United States' Chris Corning was second on 196 with a seventh-place finish in Kreischberg, while Norway's Marcus Kleveland was third on 140 despite not competing at this event.

Back-to-back Olympic champion Anna Gasser of Austria won her first home World Cup for six years with 179.75 points in the women's competition, with New Zealand's Zoi Sadowski-Synnott landing the first switch backside 1260 en route to placing second with 176.50.

Kokomo Murase of Japan ensured that the podium finished as it did at Beijing 2022, with 174.50 earning her third place.

Her compatriot Iwabuchi ranked eighth in the final with 100.50, but that was enough for her to top the discipline standings for the season.
