Slopestyle is cool. For those of you who don’t know what it is ( we’re guessing you all know what it is, but what the hell) it’s rails and jumps. It’s supposed to be like riding a snowboard park, but no snowboard parks look like slopestyle courses these days. Two pretty crazy rail set ups followed by four big jumps, it’s a guarantee you’re going to see some technical and crazy tricks go down.

The invited riders for the girls are:

Jamie Anderson ( She won it last year)

Sina Candrian

Aimee Fuller

Silje Norendal

Spencer O’Brien

Kjersti Buaas

Sarka Pancochova

Enni Rukajarvi

And for the guys it’s:

Ulrik Badertscher

Chas Guldemond

Halldor Helgason

Torstein Horgmo

Mark McMorris ( He won it last year)

Stale Sandbech

Seppe Smits

Seb Toots

Eric Willet

Aleksander Oestreng

Peetu Piiroinen

Roope Tonteri

Maxence Parrot

Shaun White


The guys are hitting the slope course first this year with it going down live on Saturday from 12-1:15 in the afternoon, and the ladies following up at 1:30-2:45. It’s going to be on ESPN and ABC from 2-6.
