A crash in practice from Norwegian slopestyle snowboarder Torstein Horgmo, who fractured his collarbone, and complaints from other athletes that some jumps were too steep prompted organisers to modify the slopestyle course in the week before the Games.[3]

A total of 252 quota spots were available to athletes to compete at the games. A maximum of 24 athletes could be entered by a National Olympic Committee, with a maximum of 14 men or 14 women. The five different events had different quota amounts allocated to them.[5] Countries are allowed to enter the same athlete into more than one event, further reducing the amount of athletes competing.
