Pequim 2022 Snowboard Slopestyle Olímpico

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Os Jogos Olímpicos de Inverno 2022, oficialmente designados XXIV Jogos Olímpicos de Inverno, têm lugar em Pequim, na China. O chamado Slopestyle é um desporto de inverno em que os atletas fazem um percurso e esqui ou em snowboard que inclui uma variedade de obstáculos como carris, saltos e outras características do terreno..

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.
