Julie Jacobson/Associated Press

Slopestyle is a downhill event that includes a series of obstacles at the start and jumps at the end. Though it is a staple in the X Games, this year it is making its Olympic debut in both the snowboarding and free-style skiing events.

The qualification rounds for the snowboarding slopestyle event start the day before the opening ceremony and include a legion of the sport's biggest stars. Shaun White will begin his quest for two medals in Sochi, Jamie Anderson from the U.S. will try and turn her status as the favorite into an Olympic gold medal and a bunch of talented Canadians and Norwegians will attempt to start off the Games with some major upsets.

We take a look at everything you need to know to be ready for the snowboard qualification rides.
