Less than a week after her 15th birthday, Maggie Voisin stayed on the path toward the Olympics, finishing first in ski slopestyle qualifying Friday at the season's second qualifying event.

After falling and posting a score of 6.8 in her first run at the U.S. Grand Prix, the teenager from Whitefish, Mont., scored an 88.0 on her second trip. Voisin will go last in Saturday's final, hoping to add to a third-place finish on her birthday last week in the season's first Olympic selection event.

Germany's Lisa Zimmerman finished second and American Greta Eliassen was third on a snowy, windblown day that was tough on some top contenders.

American Devin Logan and Canadian Kim Lamarre, who finished 1-2 last week, each failed to make finals.
