The U.S. sends plenty of contenders to this event. Three-time Winter X Games champion David Wise is probably but the favorite, but Torin Yater-Wallace could also be a medal threat if he a rib injury from December doesn’t limit him too much. Other U.S. participants include Aaron Blunck and Lyman Currier.

Competition from other countries include two Canadians (Justin Dorey and Mike Riddle) and two French skiers (Kevin Rolland and Thomas Krief).
