100 days to go to PyeongChang: Olympic slopestyle course revealed

(lifePR) (Oberhofen / Thunersee, ) The layout of the slopestyle course is based on the model seen when the Freeski and Snowboard Olympic test events were staged in the Phoenix Park back in February 2016.

However, Schneestern, the Germany-based company in charge for the design, has added and adjusted some elements in the time since then, looking to improve even further a course that was already heralded for its inventiveness by many of the world’s top slopestyle athletes at the test event two seasons ago.

Some features on the course were shifted from left to right to improve camera angles for television needs, while the fifth section of the course now offers even more possibilities for creativity.

By adding new lines and creative options for the athletes, too, and giving the course an unique and intriguing look for millions of viewers around the world, the Schneestern crew has lived up to the expectations to deliver a groundbreaking competition venue for.
