Five Australians competed in semi-finals and heats across three events and two different disciplines with no medal action for the green and gold.
After equalling Australia’s best ever result on Sunday, Louis Muhlen-Schulte encountered extremely difficult course conditions in the men’s slalom run on Day 12.
Muhlen-Schulte started his first slalom run of two permitted and stopped at the third gate due to the conditions of the course. This was not uncommon as 34 skiers out of the field of 88 failed to finish the event.
This saw his run end and he was given a DNF which meant that he was not eligible to take his second run.
