Jordan Kober secured his first World Cup podium finish Sunday, finishing third at a dual moguls event in Idre Fjäll, Sweden.

The 24-year-old from Penticton, B.C., shared the bronze with American Bradley Wilson after snowy conditions and low visibility cancelled the men's big and small finals.

Sweden's Ludvig Fjallstrom (79.74) and Matt Graham (81.06) of Australia shared first place after each won their semifinal matchup.

Kober finished his final World Cup race of the year with 78.31 points.
