U.S. Snowboard Team and U.S. Freeski Team athletes are ready to compete in the final Toyota U.S. Grand Prix of the season at Mammoth Mountain, California. Halfpipe and slopestyle qualifiers and finals for skiing and snowboarding will take place from Jan. 6-8, with the preliminary Olympic team naming celebration following the final event on Saturday night. 

Top U.S. Team athletes who have already achieved criteria for the 2022 Olympic Winter Games will be among those competing. Those athletes include two-time Olympian and 2021 Halfpipe Champion Aaron Blunck, 2018 Olympic Silver medalist Alex Ferreira, and 17-year-old Hanna Faulhaber in Freeski halfpipe. The 2021 FIS slopestyle and overall Crystal Globe winner, Colby Stevenson, achieved slopestyle criteria, along with teammate Mac Forehand.

U.S. Snowboard Team Olympic Gold Medalists Jamie Anderson and Red Gerard, along with Dusty Henricksen, have achieved criteria in slopestyle thus far. Defending Olympic Gold Medalist Chloe Kim and teammate Maddie Mastro have both achieved criteria for Olympic selection, although they will not be competing this weekend. 

With points and podiums on the line, be prepared to see a heavy progression session as the international field of competitors drop into Mammoth’s Unbound halfpipe and slopestyle course. 


Keep an eye on the U.S. Team vets in the men’s snowboard halfpipe, including three-time Olympic Gold Medalist Shaun White, who is looking to compete in his fifth Olympics. X Games medalist Toby Miller can lean into years of experience and skill in his effort to qualify for Team USA. Young guns Joey Okesson, Lucas Foster and Tessa Maud also have high hopes for their performances this weekend as they look to secure an Olympic team spot.

In slopestyle, the stakes have never been higher. A talented field of competitors is ready to put it all on the line, including Julia Marino and Hailey Langland in the women’s field, Brock Crouch, Chris Corning, Judd Henkes, and many more in the men’s field, all gunning for points and the podium. 

“Mammoth Mountain is once again the perfect host for the riders to battle it out for those final Olympic team spots,” U.S. Snowboard Team Coach Mike Jankowski said ahead of training. “The halfpipe and slopestyle venues are in great shape and we anticipate another epic and suspenseful competition to the very end.”

Snowboard slopestyle qualifiers kick off on Thursday, Jan. 6, with halfpipe qualifiers on Friday, Jan 7. Saturday, Jan. 8, will be a big day for snowboarding, with afternoon slopestyle finals and night pipe finals.

The level of talent on the U.S. Freeski Team is through the roof as the athletes head into their final Grand Prix of the season. It’s going to be an absolute battle to make it into the finals, let alone advance to the podium.

In halfpipe, two-time Olympic Gold Medalist David Wise is one to watch, as he looks to qualify for his third Olympic Games, as well as Olympic Bronze Medalist Brita Sigourney. A packed slate of talented U.S. athletes, including Birk Irving and Lyman Currier will also make a bid for a spot on Team USA.

In slopestyle, Alex Hall, Nick Goepper, Cody LaPlante, Caroline Claire, and Maggie Voisin are among those looking to earn their place on the team. 

“With four events already under the belt this season the team is really firing on all cylinders and looking to keep the momentum going here in Mammoth,” U.S. Freeski Slopestyle Coach, Skogen Sprang, said ahead of training. “This is a pivotal event in the qualifying process and we’re really looking forward to an exciting slopestyle contest.”

The Freeski competition kicks off with halfpipe qualifiers on Thursday, Jan. 6, followed by slopestyle qualifiers and halfpipe finals on Friday, Jan. 7. The weekend concludes with slopestyle finals on Saturday, Jan. 8.
