The 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia are just around the corner and as diehard snowsports fans we couldn’t be more excited to see what’s in store for the world’s best winter athletes. Preliminary qualification rounds for Snowboarding, Freestyle Skiing and Figure Skating begin tomorrow February 6 and full, day-time TV coverage begins Saturday, February 8. Everyone has their favorite event, but we’ve had a hard time deciding which skiing or snowboarding event we’re most excited to watch, especially with three new events: Snowboarding Slopestyle, Freeskiing Halfpipe and Freeskiing Slopestyle.
Originally from the icy trails of New Jersey, I moved West to pursue powder and a career in writing and editing. Now in Aspen, Colo. and working for Ski.com managing the website and blog content, I couldn't be happier. You'll find me skiing at Aspen Mountain or Aspen Highlands in the winter and mountain biking at Snowmass in the summer.
