Esquí Estilo Libre Halfpipe Olímpico Beijing 2022

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Las Olimpiadas Invernales 2022, conocidas oficialmente como XXIV Juegos Olímpicos de Invierno, se realizan en Beijing, China. El evento de Esquí Estilo Libre Halpipe ha venido realizándose en todos los Olímpicos desde su debut en los Juegos de Sochi en Rusia, en 2014.

The halfpipe is a purpose-built, semi-circular ramp made of snow, with seven-metre-high walls. Competitors perform aerial tricks above the walls while sliding from one side to the other.

Cassie Sharpe of Canada is the reigning Olympic champion in women’s halfpipe, after winning gold in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018.
