The depth of the men’s slopestyle team is as deep as ever led by rising star Dusty Henricksen and defending Olympic gold medalist Red Gerard. Shaun White will once again represent the U.S. Snowboard Halfpipe Team in pursuit of his fourth Olympic gold medal. White will be joined by veteran Taylor Gold, who will be looking for redemption from the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympic Games. New to the U.S. Snowboard Team this season is rookie athlete Bea Kim. Kim is a Mammoth Mountain athlete and has a great model to follow with all six U.S. Snowboard Women’s Halfpipe Team members being direct results of the Mammoth Mountain Snowboard Team, illustrating the complementary partnership between U.S. Ski & Snowboard and the famed California resort. The U.S. Snowboardcross Team also has new talent hitting the slopes including Tyler Hamel, Cody Winters and Connor Schlegel. Making the jump to the Pro Team is Meghan Tierney and Stacy Gaskill following massive strides in 2020-21. Veterans Faye Gulini, Lindsey Jacobellis, Hagen Kearney, Mick Dierdorff, and Jake Vedder will look to carry momentum from this past season into the heart of the Olympic qualification process. Each athlete accepting their nomination to the U.S. Snowboard Team receives world-class program support, along with access to the U.S. Ski & Snowboard USANA Center of Excellence, as well as athletic benefits including expert coaching, sport science, sports medicine, and high-performance staff, and education opportunities.
