Eliza Outtrim made a strong showing in her first Olympics, but she will leave Sochi without a medal.
Outtrim, of Hamden, finished sixth in the women's moguls event on Saturday.
After qualifying for the finals in fourth place on Thursday, Outtrim was in a good position to advance on Saturday.
In the first round of the finals, Outtrim finished second, and joined 11 other skiers to move on to the next round of competition. Outtrim's next run was good enough for fifth place. The top six skiers earned a spot in the medal round.
Outtrim skied second in the final run of the day, but the 19.37 score given by the judges turned out to be her lowest score of the competition.
Canadian Justine Doufour-Lapointe won the Olympic gold medal, while her sister Chloe Doufour-Lapointe took silver. American Hannah Kearney, the reigning Olympic moguls champ, won the bronze.
