Aspen 2021 FIS Snowboard and Freeski World Championships

Aspen 2021 FIS Snowboard and Freeski World Championships

Welcome to the Aspen 2021 FIS Snowboard and Freeski World Championships, featuring the Visa Big Air presented by Land Rover, virtual media center. Links to photos, videos, quotes, results, and event recaps will be updated throughout the course of the competition. 

Due to COVID-19 event operating restrictions, coverage of the Aspen 2021 FIS Snowboard and Freeski World Championships at Buttermilk in Aspen, Colo. March 10-16, and the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix March 18-21 will be conducted remotely. We thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. Please reach out with any questions, we want to ensure you have what you need to cover the event. Without valuable media partners such as yourself, we would not be able to tell the stories of the athletes as successfully.

Key Facts: 
  • This is the first time that a nation has hosted consecutive FIS World Championships following the 2019 FIS Snowboard, Freestyle, and Freeski World Championships held in Utah. 
  • Aspen Snowmass is no stranger to world-class competition. Buttermilk has been home to X Games Aspen for two decades and hosts the Aspen Snowmass Open annually, now a stop on the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Rev Tour. Snowmass served as an Olympic tryout event at the 2018 U.S. Grand Prix and Aspen Mountain even played host to the 1950 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.
  • The Aspen 2021 FIS Snowboard and Freeski World Championships will include slopestyle, halfpipe, as well as the second annual Visa Big Air presented by Land Rover, originally scheduled Dec. 18-19 at Copper Mountain, Colo. Following show-stopping performances in Atlanta’s SunTrust Park in December of 2019, it’s only fitting the Visa Big Air found a new arena fit for big air progression. 
  • 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. The Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain originally scheduled from Dec. 13-19 is officially canceled. 
  • About 300 athletes from 37 nations are set to compete.
  • Course / Halfpipe Details:
    • Three Jumps (55’, 65’, 60’), and two sets of rails.
    • Halfpipe - 22' walls, 550’ long
    • Course Photos
  • To encourage social distancing, there will not be spectator zones for both the World Championships and World Cup competitions, fans are encouraged to tune in to watch or stream on the networks and streaming platforms of NBC. 
  • Past FIS Snowboard World Championship Medallists
  • Past FIS Freeski World Championship Medalists
