X Games Slopestyle Course Preview

Another sunny and warm day is presiding over Aspen, CO, as the slopestyle course was opened and the men and women were unleashed upon it. Starting off with a down rail/box option, the next feature is a down-flat-down box or rail feature.
Then into either a big box made of snow, or a long flat box. Picking up speed, competitors fly into either a jump or a canon box. Quickly following is a big tabletop. into the channel gap jump. Either gap the channel or take it straight on, riders head into the last jump, a pretty sizable stepdown.
Early comments on the course say that it’s fast. There isn’t much time to set up and get yourself dialed between jumps, it’s just land, and you’re into the next feature.Link: X Games Slopestyle Course Preview Movie
