Thirty-two freeskiers and 17 snowboarders will represent the U.S. at the Snow Rodeo FIS World Cup at Calgary, Alberta’s Canada Olympic Park Feb.12-16 in slopestyle and halfpipe competition. Athletes are looking forward to returning to the traditionally dialed venues. 

“I’m excited to compete in Calgary again this season and continue this crazy back to back schedule,” said Olympic bronze medalist Brita Sigourney. “Last year, the temperatures were in the negative 20’s, and this year we are looking at positive temperatures, which is great to see. I think we are all ready to put it down at the last World Cup of the season.”

David Wise is the returning champion after battling through wind and snow to claim victory last season. Returning from a broken femur, David has had a tough stretch in 2020 since kicking off the season with a second-place finish at the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain, Colo. As he returns to familiar territory, he’ll look to earn his 17th career World Cup podium. 

Teammate Aaron Blunck leads the FIS World Cup standings by a narrow margin ahead of Canada’s Noah Bowman, who is coming fresh of a win at Dew Tour. Also in looking good in the standings are U.S. Freeski Team members Birk Irving, Lyman Currier, and Taylor Seaton who are ranked third, fourth, and fifth respectively. Aaron is in a good position to claim the Crystal Globe, but will need to fend off a confident Noah on his home turf.

The U.S. Snowboard Team also has a strong contingent dropping into the Canada Olympic Park halfpipe. Rookie team members Tessa Maud, Jason Wolle, Lucas Foster, and Jack Coyne are all set to compete. 

In slopestyle, the U.S. Freeski Team is rolling deep including Colby Stevenson, Deven Fagan, and Cody LaPlante who are currently all in the Top-10 of the FIS Cup Standings. Colby recently won both X Games Aspen and the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth. Joining Colby is teammate Alex Hall who is heading to Calgary fresh off a 1st place in streetstyle and a second place in slopestyle at the 2020 Dew Tour. 

Representing the women is U.S. Freeski Pro Team member Caroline Claire along with rookie team members Marin Hamill, Rell Harwood, and Grace Henderson. Caroline is currently second in the World Cup Standings followed by Marin in third, and Rell in tenth. 

In snowboard slopestyle, rookie team member Dusty Hendricksen is leading the charge after earning top honors at the Mammoth Grand Prix, which served as his first-ever World Cup podium. With consistent performances throughout the season, Dusty is currently first in the World Cup Standings. 

Winsport Canada Olympic Park consistently puts together a world-class facility featuring Canada’s only 22 foot superpipe and a purpose-built competition slopestyle course that will push the athletes to the limit. Tune in live to catch all the action for the Calgary Snow Rodeo World Cup.
