The longest running domestic tour entering its 17th season, the 2013-13 Sprint U.S. Grand Prix will make its debut on the FIS World Cup schedule in both freeskiing and snowboarding halfpipe and slopestyle. The Tour will also hold a TTR 5 Star rating for snowboarding as well as the highest AFP rating of Platinum for freeskiing in both halfpipe and slopestyle. With three stops scheduled this season the Tour kicks off its first halfpipe event at Park City Mountain Resort in December. The final stop then shifts gears to Canyons Resort where they will host both skicross and snowboardcross FIS NorAm competitions. With over $375,000 in prize money up for grabs and the 2014 Olympics in Sochi on the horizon it's bound to be a progressive competitive season.
