It’s official, snowboard slopestyle has been added to the 2014 Sochi Olympics. From IOC President Jacques Rogge:

We are very pleased with the addition of ski and snowboard slopestyle and snowboard special slalom in the Olympic Winter Games programme. Such events provide great entertainment for the spectators and add further youthful appeal to our already action-packed lineup of Olympic winter sports. We look forward to welcoming all the athletes to Sochi in 2014.

Start practicing those double corked 1260s. More coverage at Transworld.
