The slopestyle competition is a little more wide open as only one event has been held for the men and two for the women. Sochi medalist Nick Goepper was the only U.S. male to reach the podium on the Dew Tour (the only qualifying event thus far for men), and is currently leading the pack. Maggie Voisin has been the most consistent female on the slopestyle side but still only has one top-three finish which came last February at the Mammoth Grand Prix. Sochi team members Bobby Brown, Gus Kenworthy, and Devin Logan are all looking to contend under the rings once again in the slopestyle event in PyeongChang, while newcomers Alex Hall, Cody LaPlante, Darian Stevens, and Taylor Lundquist are fighting for their right to represent the U.S.
The Toyota U.S. Grand Prix this weekend is poised to play a large role in the qualification picture with five qualification events. The freeski slopestyle men will have two opportunities to land on the podium as they complete in a double-header, while Aspen locals are hoping to shine in the men's freeskiing halfpipe competition.
