The past four days of Grand Prix competition at Mammoth Mountain produced some intense moments and full-on, holding-nothing-back riding as a field of 45 slopestyle and halfpipe riders battled for a few coveted spots on the US Olympic team. With the pressure on, some riders who found themselves low on the team rankings going into the Mammoth Grand Prix rose to the occasion and others, who were looking good to make the team, crumbled.

Following a day of upsets and come-ups at the final Mammoth Grand Prix pipe, the majority of the US Olympic slopestyle and halfpipe was announced at the Mammoth Main Lodge before a frothing crowd. The rest of the team will be named Tuesday pending an assessment of points and coaches final picks.
