At over 400 feet long, with 19-foot walls the superpipe at Copper Mountain is one of the best in North America. The riders will be judged based on execution, amplitude, landings, difficulty of tricks, and overall impression.

SLOPESTYLE

RAIL JAM EXHIBITION
A crowd and athlete favorite, rail jams involve street skateboarding influenced tricks performed under night skies and stadium lights in the village center. This jam style competition allows athletes to throw their most technical tricks on a specially constructed set of rails, similar to those found on city staircases. Riders are judged on style, difficulty of tricks, landings and overall impression.
