The slopestyle is a course where snow modules (big air, table, hip) and artificial modules (rails) are scattered. It will be situated on the "Double M" piste that runs alongside the Lanches chairlift in Tignes Val Claret, like for the first 3 editions.
A few examples:
Pad 1: (left side) flat to down box
(right side) flat to down rail
Pad 3: Combo Pad
(left side) Gap to flat rail, with step down to down box
(center) Step up butter pad to street box
(right) Station wagon rail
Step up butter pad to down street rail
Riders are judged on amplitude, execution, difficulty of line, landings and use of the course.

SuperPipe is probably the most awaited competition of the X Games. And the picture of this floodlit over-sized half-pipe gets all freestyle fans to dream... Its king-size dimensions give the riders maximum speed and amplitude.
Athletes are judged on amplitude, execution, difficulty, landings and use of the superpipe.
