Grand Prix Snowboard Field is Official - and is Stacked
Snowboard qualifying for the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix begins Wednesday morning in the Eagle Superpipe and the fields are set for both the men and the women. A stacked lineup includes Scotty Lago, Louie Vito, Elena Hight, X Games gold medalist Kelly Clark - and JUST ADDED: Shaun White!

Also a special note: Wednesday's Paul Mitchell Progression Session Big Air, featuring Park City All Stars Alex Schlopy and Joss Christensen, has been moved to an earlier in the day: now running 3:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. to give you extra time to get up the free Cold War Kids show on Lower Main Street at 7:00!
We'll keep you updated on the action throughout the day as riders fight for spots in Friday's finals and the chance to earn points toward qualifying for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Also coming tomorrow: your first look at the qualifying field on the freeskiers' side as they prepare for their turn in the pipe on Thursday!
Say your prayers and come get religious at The Holy Bowly!
King Midas visit and now you're good as gold!
Bring your spacesuit because you're going straight to the moon.
The Sochi Games are just days away, and while we'll be rooting hard for every Team USA athlete - from the curlers to the figure skaters - we'll be cheering especially hard for 2 athletes in particular: because they're our very own! Slopestyle snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg and slopestyle freeskier Joss Christensen are both Park City locals and both part of "I Ride Park City" All Stars. Both will be in medal contention, and we couldn't be prouder to have them as representatives to the world both of our mountain and their hometown of Park City.
The Pole Jam will let you get silly in every which way.
We open November 23rd and we hope you guys are ready to shred! Come check out the sweet features this weekend off of 3 Kings Lift. It's all about those early season hammers!
