Aspen Snowmass is proud to host the FIS Snowboard and Freeski World Championship and Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix March 10-21, 2021 at Buttermilk. This will be the first time since the 1950 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships at Aspen Mountain that we will host an FIS World Championship.
The Aspen 2021 FIS Snowboard and Freeski World Championships will include slopestyle, halfpipe, as well as the second annual Visa Big Air. The Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix World Cup slopestyle and halfpipe competitions will serve as the first snowboard and freeski Olympic tryout events and will replace the originally scheduled competitions at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, Calif., from Feb. 3-6.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, both the World Championships and World Cup competitions, will be closed to the public and produced with comprehensive COVID-19 risk mitigation protocols in place for participants and staff. Fans are encouraged to tune in to watch or stream on the networks and streaming platforms of NBC.

The Aspen 2021 FIS Snowboard and Freeski World Championships and the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix are contingent on local and state health department approvals based on existing and future COVID-19 rules and regulations. FIS, U.S. Ski & Snowboard, the local organizing committee, and Aspen Snowmass are taking a unified approach consistent with guidance from federal, state, and local health authorities.


We look forward to virtually welcoming global media to Aspen Snowmass for the Aspen 2021 FIS Snowboard and Freeski World Championships and the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix. Due to COVID-19 event and resort operations protocols and taking into consideration the health and safety of resort staff, event staff, and the athletes, venue access is limited to essential personnel only. There will be no spectator access and all media coverage must be conducted remotely. Please contact the Aspen Snowmass Communication Team for additional information.

Media will have timely access to photo and video assets each day of training and competition, podium interviews, as well as remote access to athletes based on their availability. For virtual access, please fill out the Media Accreditation Form.
