Here’s your first look at the Olympic slopestyle course in Pyeongchang

After making its Olympic debut in Sochi, in 2014, ski slopestyle is ready for its sophomore showing on the world stage; the ladies’ and men’s medal competitions are among the most anticipated events in the Pyeongchang line-up.

The slopestyle course in Pyeongchang—situated at Phoenix Park—boasts six features, with three multifaceted rail—jib—jump—butter offerings at the top of the course and three multifaceted jumps down below. Athletes hail the course as one of the most unique ever made, and it is expected that the course will inspire creativity and individuality in the athletes’ runs.

Slopestyle training at Phoenix Park begins on Wednesday, February 14. The ladies’ qualifications and finals take place on February 17 and men’s qualifications and finals are to be contested on February 18.
