New Zealand's Jossi Wells has been eliminated at the first stage of the men's ski superpipe on the opening day of the Winter X Games in Aspen, Colorado, today.

Wells finished 12th of 16 competitors, failing to breach the top eight who will feature in tomorrow's final.

The 22-year-old had scores of 64.66 and 67 in his two runs, with 72.66 the mark required to make the top eight.

Wells last year claimed bronze in the ski big air at the world's most prestigious winter snow sports competition, his third X Games medal, and will line up in that event on Sunday (NZ time).
