Women’s snowboarding will feature a pair of superstars taking to the slopes in Aspen this year, as expectations for both Anna Gasser and Chloe Kim are enormous.
The latter was the breakout star of last year’s Winter Olympics, winning the gold medal in the halfpipe, but she’s already been a star on the X Games circuit for some time. The SuperPipe specialist is a four-time gold medal winner at the X Games, including in Aspen last year.
On the Big Air side, Gasser made history this winter by becoming the first woman to land a cab triple 1260, and the big question is whether she’ll show off the trick in Aspen:
Jamie Anderson has been the most consistent rider in Slopestyle for years, and she’s expected to add to her medal tally.
In the men’s competitions, Max Parrot leads a strong Canadian Big Air contingent, and the back-to-back Aspen winner will be difficult to dethrone. It can be done, however, and both the Big Air and Slopestyle men’s events are regarded as some of the hardest to call this year.
