The 8 best athletes are making it to final. Be there on Thursday, March 17th between 10 am and noon to cheer them on!
The oldest competitor on the Slopestyle roster, JF Houle, age 25, from Quebec, Canada, used his savvy rail skills to claim the first qualifying spot. He benefited greatly from a major course change: the final jump was nixed due to poor weather and a lack of speed, meaning skiers hit 5 features instead of 6 and just two jumps instead of three. That played to Houle's advantage, who is a rail master...
Tom Wallish, the defending Winter X Games Europe gold medalist, was hoping to make a comeback after missing the Winter X Games 15 in Aspen with a broken left scapula. But he did not manage to put down a run that was clean enough for the top height.
Hard to guess who will end up on the podium on Thursday!
