Snowboard Slopestyle Olímpico en Beijing 2022 Slopestyle

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Las Ollimpiadas inveranles 2022, conocidas oficialmente como los XXIV Juegos Olímpicos de Invierno, se realizan en Beijing, China. Slopestyle es un deporte invernal en que los atletas descienden esquiando o en snowboard por una pista que incluye una variedad de obstáculos que como barandillas, resaltes y otras características.

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.
