Nearly a dozen athletes were named to the first-ever U.S. slopestyle and halfpipe teams following the Grand Prix finals at Park City Mountain Resort in Park City, Utah.
The athletes, six men and five women, are slated to compete in the Olympics next month in Sochi, Russia. While these 11 athletes qualified, there’s a chance that the U.S. could name additional athletes to the slopestyle and halfpipe teams next week.
Stay tuned for exclusive interviews with some of these athletes.
