Olympic Briefing: Slopestyle

Paying Attention: Slopestyle is new to the 2014 Olympics. The video (special thanks to GoPro for making this and other POV videos available) and this wiki should brief you on the event and it’s challenges (and dangers). Already, one high profile contestant, Shaun White, has dropped out citing a wrist injury. White is going for his third gold medal in the snowboard half-pipe, where he will try to make history. We had another video tee’d up for the Slopestyle preview, but, regrettably, the Olympic Committee doesn’t want their material viewed on websites other than “official ones” , like YouTube (On the other hand, you’d think they’d want to gather up as much distribution as possible).  That’s fine–they produced the work and have rights which we respect–so to see the Official Olympic Preview of Slopestyle, via YouTube, just click here.
