Snowmass is proud to host the Toyota U.S. Grand Prix, January 10-14, where members of the U.S. Snowboard Team and U.S. Freestyle Ski Team will be vie to earn their spot on the U.S. Olympic team. The event will be nationally televised on NBC and NBC Sports.

Snowmass is the second-to-last stop on the U.S. Grand Prix tour, making it a critical competition for the world’s elite snowboard and freeski athletes to qualify to represent the U.S. in PyeongChang in February. Contenders include snowboarding legend Shaun White, Kelly Clark, Gus Kenworthy, Maddie Bowman, and local favorites Torin Yater-Wallace and Alex Ferreira, who both grew up skiing Snowmass’ slopes.

Both Halfpipe and Slopestyle competitions take place in the Snowmass terrain park. Qualifiers take place on January 10 & 11, while finals are January 12, 13 & 14. The fun continues in the Village, with awards ceremonies, après parties, fireworks and more, starting at 2:30pm on January 12 and 13.
