The slopestyle competition was recently added to the event line up following an announcement giving support for 2014 Winter Games inclusion by the International Olympic Committee in September (Slopestyle skiing, halfpipe skiing and slopestyle snowboarding are all being considered for the 2014 Winter Games). In November the FIS voted to add slopestyle skiing and slopestyle snowboarding to the respective World Championship events. The final approval by the International Olympic Committee for skiing events to be added to the 2014 Winter Games will come following a review of the World Championship events held this February at Park City Mountain Resort.
