World Cup gold medallist Katie Ormerod has made the British Ski and Snowboard park and pipe team for the new season.

The 19-year-old fractured a vertebra in her back in March and missed the World Championships.

Ormerod was Britain's first Big Air World Cup winner in Moscow in January.

Aimee Fuller, along with men's snowboarders Billy Morgan and Jamie Nicholls, will aim to qualify for a second Winter Olympics when the games begin in Pyeongchang in February.

Freestyle skiers James Woods and Izzy Atkin - who both won slopestyle bronze medals at the World Championships in Sierra Nevada in March - are also among those to make the team.

Cardrona, in New Zealand, will host the start of the World Cup season for ski slopestyle on 26-27 August and snowboarding from Sunday, 3 September.
