Olympic hopeful freestyle skiers and snowboarders are in Breckenridge, Colorado, this week for more Olympic qualifying action.
The Dew Tour stop follows up last week’s qualification event in Copper Mountain, Colorado, the season-opening Toyota U.S. Grand Prix in which snowboarders Chloe Kim, Maddie Mastro and Kelly Clark swept the women’s halfpipe podium.
This week’s Dew Tour event includes halfpipe and slopestyle finals for both skiing and snowboarding. All of the halfpipe finals are Friday and all of the slopestyle finals are Saturday, with a team event on Sunday.
Kim, who is seeking to make her Olympic debut in PyeongChang, is among those who can lock down a U.S. Olympic Team nomination with a win. Also trying to clinch Olympic team nominations with wins are 2014 Olympic champion Jamie Anderson and Red Gerard in slopestyle snowboarding, Maggie Voisin in slopestyle skiing, and Torin Yater-Wallace and Olympic champion David Wise in halfpipe skiing.
