The 2021 Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix Snowboard and Freeski World Cup has been postponed. FIS, U.S. Ski & Snowboard, and Mammoth Mountain are working closely together to reschedule the events and will follow up with more information as it becomes available.
The Best Athletes in the Game
The best skiers and riders from across the globe are set to return to Unbound Main Park for Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix World Cup slopestyle and halfpipe competition. It's only fitting that on its 25th anniversary, there is something special about the grand prix series. The Grand Prix at Mammoth will serve as the first U.S. Snowboard and Freeski Olympic Tryout Event and provides a pathway towards qualifying for the 2022 U.S. Olympic Snowboard and Freeski Teams.
This event will showcase many athletes that call Mammoth home, including Olympic gold medalist Chloe Kim and Jamie Anderson, as well as Maddie Mastro, Judd Henkes, Toby Miller and rising star Dusty Henricksen.
There will be no spectator zones for the Land Rover U.S Grand Prix this season and fans are encouraged to tune in on NBC broadcast or streaming platforms.
Event schedule will be provided shortly.
All events are weather/conditions permitting and subject to cancellation or changes following guidance of state and local health officials. Follow #MammothGP on Mammoth's and U.S. Ski & Snowboard's social media channels for the best action shots.
What is the U.S. Grand Prix Event?
The Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix is an elite level snowboard and freeski FIS World Cup event featuring the world's best freeski and snowboard athletes competing in both halfpipe and slopestyle competition. The event is organized and hosted in partnership with Mammoth Mountain and U.S. Ski & Snowboard, the Olympic National Governing Body (NGB) of ski and snowboard sports in the USA.
Does the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix have anything to do with the Olympics?
Mammoth's ties to U.S. Olympic Freeski and Snowboard Team selections are second to none. Mammoth has hosted the Grand Prix more than a dozen times, and has been fortunate enough to name our Olympic athletes three times including in 1988 – the first year the Olympics hosted snowboard halfpipe as an official event. Mammoth also hosted the final qualifying event before the 2014 and 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
During the 2016-17 season, U.S. Ski & Snowboard broke the mold of the Olympic qualification process by hosting an Olympic selection event the season prior to the 2018 Pyeongchang Games as a result of athlete feedback following the 2014 Olympic selection process. Essentially, this made Mammoth the first and last stop on the road to Pyeongchang for U.S. Freeski and Snowboard athletes.
How long has U.S. Snowboard and Freeski Athletes been training at Mammoth Mountain?
The U.S Snowboard Team has been utilizing Mammoth's amazing terrain and facilities since early 2001, when halfpipe coach Pete del Giudice took Ross Powers and Kelly Clark to Mammoth to train prior to the 2002 Salt Lake Games. It is evident Mammoth had something to offer as both Ross and Kelly went on to win Olympic halfpipe gold medals.
In recent years, while many of us are swapping skis and snowboards for bikes and beaches, the athletes of the U.S. Snowboard and Freeski Teams are firing on all cylinders at Mammoth Mountain for spring training camp. As an official training site of U.S. Ski & Snowboard, members of the U.S. Freeski and Snowboard Pro and Rookie Teams swarm to the acclaimed Unbound Terrain Park for weeks of full-tilt training.
How good is the view to watch?
There will be no spectator zones for the Land Rover U.S Grand Prix this season and fans are encouraged to tune in on NBC broadcast or streaming platforms (see schedule below).
Will any trails/parks be closed to the public during the event?
Yes, the slopestyle course and 22' halfpipe will be closed. Terrain parks that will remain open for public use are Main Park, South Park, Jibs & More, Forest Trail and all 3 Playgrounds, which offer a wide range of terrain features for all ability levels.
How do I apply for media credentials to this event?
More to come.
