The link above is to Method Magazine article about ours friend a FIS adding SlopeStyle to the Olympics.


The article asks some good questions about the history of SlopeStyle.

The USASA added Slopestyle to the National Championships in 1994 at Sierra at Tahoe.

The season prior we added it to regional series so the athlets could adapt in time for Nationals.

Mike Chantry and myself created the rules and technical specifications for the event four years before SlopeStyle appeared in the ESPN X Games in 1997.


The current athletes should get involved pushing back on FIS and the USSA about how SlopeStyle should be added to Olympics


Thanks,
