What is the U.S. Grand Prix Event?
The U.S. Grand Prix is a top tier snowboarding and freeskiing event featuring both halfpipe and slopestyle competitions.
How good is the view to watch?
Watch the action from the Tusks Sundeck at Main Lodge, grab a spot at the base of the pipe or along the fence line in Main Park for closer viewing. Get as close to the action as possible – there will be snow-stairs cut into the halfpipe wall to allow for easy access to watch. The center of Main Park (along the jumps) allows the best view to watch the slopestyle unfold each day.
When/where is everything happening?
The event will take place at Main Lodge with contests in Main Park below the chair line of Unbound Express (Chair 6). The sponsor village will be at the base of the competition venue, right off the Main Lodge sundeck, between Broadway Express (Chair 1) and Unbound Express (Chair 6). The schedule of events is posted above.
