Big Air Time

The IOC just announced that Big Air snowboarding will debut as an Olympic sport in the 2018 Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. The new event was approved along and three others including mass start in speedskating, curling mixed doubles, and a team slalom skiing event, based on factors including, “youth appeal, TV and media interest, gender equality and infrastructure and operational cost and complexity,” according to a statement from the IOC, which is sure to ignite the they-need-us-more-than-we-need-them debate in the snowboard community.
