What You Need to Know about the Mammoth Mountain Grand Prix 2022’s Delayed Schedule

If it were up to us here at ASO Mammoth, we would have Bluebird days, every day. However, you can’t have snow without weather, and the same geography and weather that brings Mammoth Mountain snow by the foot also sometimes brings dangerous conditions that shut down parts of the mountain.

That’s what happened at this year’s Mammoth Mountain Grand Prix when high winds affected lift operations. You can be sure that the Grand Prix will be back, so we’ve written out what you need to know about the delayed Mammoth Mountain Grand Prix schedule below!

The 2022 Mammoth Mountain Grand Prix Schedule

The best athletes in the world are competing in slopestyle and half pipe events this weekend for a chance at the thrill of winning an epic competition as well as to qualify for the 2022 U.S. Olympic Freeski and Snowboard teams.

The qualifying events took place Thursday and Friday and will continue on Saturday. For now, the remaining rounds for all events will take place on Saturday, January 8th with any that can’t be fit in taking place on Sunday, January 9th.

However, the event schedule all depends on the weather for the remaining days. If other events are put on hold on Saturday then even more will have to take place on Sunday, which was booked as a precautionary holding day in case weather closed the mountain.

Meet Mammoth Local Athletes in the Competition!

Chloe Kim: In 2015, at the ripe age of 14, Chloe became the youngest winner of X Games gold in the superpipe. Even though she had the skills and the points to do so, she was too young to compete in the 2014 Olympic games, so she instead competed in 2016 at the Winter Youth Olympic Games where she won both halfpipe and slopestyle gold. 2018 was no different, where Kim also took gold in the halfpipe. She was the first athlete ever to win all four major snowboarding titles in the Olympics, Worlds, Youth Olympics, and X Games. She was also nominated for the 2016 ESPYS award for Best Breakthrough Athlete. When she isn’t snowboarding she’s shopping, hiking, skateboarding, and playing guitar.

Maddie Mastro: She landed the “double crippler” both in and out of halfpipe competition, she made the Olympic team in 2018 at age 17, she flies through the air and calls Mammoth Mountain “home”. Maddie Mastro is not only a youngin but she’s a FORCE. She’s often seen boosting the halfpipe at Main Park Mammoth Mountain with her incredibly technical style and is a proud member of the Mammoth Snowboard Team now training for the Winter Olympics Bejing 2022.

Judd Henkes: Judd Henkes riding style one to be reckoned with, he’s got style AND grace. A member of the U.S. Snowboard Team since he was 15, first on the halfpipe team, Henkes switched to slopestyle at 16. He was a rookie rider the first two years and is now entering his third as a professional. Brock, Dusty, and Henkes are often spotted lapping Mammoth’s Main Park on Gimbal God’s Instagram and returns home to Mammoth to compete in the Grand Prix this year and represent Mammoth alongside his fellow teammates.

Recovering for the past few years, he’s back at it and better than ever! Make sure to catch Brock Crouch competing in the Mammoth Mountain Grand Prix once again.
