What is Slopestyle and Big Air?

Slopestyle is the newest freestyle event to make its debut in the Olympics, and consists of a course containing jumps, rails, boxes and other features. Athletes ride down the course and are judged for their degree of difficulty, amplitude off the jumps and execution of each trick.

Snowboard Big Air will have its debut at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Athletes perform tricks off a single ramp, and are judged by a number of criteria, including style, degree of risk and execution of landing.
