Blackcomb Terrain Park
Qualifiers (Sunday April 14 |1145am-3pm) and Finals (Monday April 15 |1045am-3pm)
Slopestyle is a hugely integrated and technically challenging discipline, featuring jumps, rails, and features to challenge and intimidate even the best skiers in the world. With Slopestyle skiing now included in the Winter Olympic Games, expect to see slope royalty come out to play. The WSI Slopestyle will be taking place in the Highest Level Park on Blackcomb. The line drops from above the gated entrance and uses the entire left side with a combo of huge jumps and mind-blowing features. The HL right jumps will be open to public throughout the week with the exception of the days when the Slopestyle event is on. On that day the right line will be open for spectators viewing the event.

The Big Air jump, located at the base of Whistler Mountain, is the ultimate in ski-voyeurism. Not for the faint of heart, this jump will shock, amaze and intimidate, and that’s just the crowd! Immerse yourself in the electric atmosphere of Skier’s Plaza, and watch the mind-boggling aerial talents of the who’s who of the ski world throw down in one of the most impressive displays of raw talent and gutsy trick-wrangling in an attempt to walk away with the big dollars, the coveted title of Big Air Champion and endless bragging rights.
