The stacked roll call for this year’s event will include familiar faces to both the core industry and the masses of the world as all eight of the superpipe and slopestyle gold medalists from the Sochi Games will be pitted head-to-head against an entire field of friends and rivals once again, for some it will be the first competition since the Games.
