Beijing 2022 Olympischer Snowboard Hindernisparcours

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Die 1922 Olympischen Winterspiele, offiziell die XXIV Olymp. Winterspiele, finden in Peking, China, statt. Slopestyle (Hindernislauf) ist ein Wintersport für Ski oder Snowboard, gefahren wird auf einer Piste mit unterschiedlichsten Hindernissen.

Points are scored for amplitude, originality and quality of tricks. The discipline has its roots in action sports like skateboarding and BMX and has very successfully crossed over into the snow sports worlds of skiing and snowboarding.

Skiers use Twin-tip skis for their symmetry since they often go large portions of the course backward (referred to as "switch") and for their balanced weight so as to not destabilise spins.

Snowboard slopestyle first appeared at the Sochi Olympics in 2014.
