In end of January, the world’s best freestylers will be taking to their boards and skis in a gravity-defying display of choreography. The two World Cups will be taking place at the Seiser Alm Snow Park.
Slopestyle, first introduced at Sochi 2014, is the most recent extreme-discipline on the Olympic scene, and sees athletes competing on a course which features a variety of jumps and obstacles. Six judges rate tricks on creativity, difficulty and execution or style, while jumps are evaluated on height, range and landing.
In addition to the sports competitions, there is a great supporting programme for all spectators and participants: the Seiser Alm Legends Music Festival with a great line-up of bands and DJs.
