2014 Sochi Winter Olympics: Meet The Halfpipe & Slopestyle Skiing Team!

There are less than 20 days until the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics and the first nominees for the Halfpipe and Slopestyle Skiing Team were announced this weekend at the Visa U.S. Freeskiing Grand Prix held at Park City Mountain Resort in Utah.

Time to meet the Halfpipe and Slopestyle Skiing Team: David Wise, Nick Goepper, Gus Kenworthy, Maddie Bowman, Bobby Brown, Keri Herman, Devin Logan, Aaron Blunck, Lyman Currier, Brita Sigourney and Angeli VanLaanen were the first skiers to be nominated to the team.

The full team roster will be released next week!

Both halfpipe and slopestyle will make their Olympic debut this year. Slopestyle’s goal is to perform the most difficult tricks while getting the highest amplitude off of jumps, with an emphasis on performing different types of tricks instead of doing one great trick repeatedly.
