SunTrust Park Plays Host to Some of the Biggest Names in Winter Sports During the Visa Big Air

The Atlanta Braves and U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association are teaming up to host Visa Big Air, which will be presented by Land Rover at SunTrust Park on Friday, December 20th and Saturday, December 21st. Visa Big Air, sanctioned by FIS Snowboard and the Freeski World Cup, will be the first event of its kind to come to Atlanta. This two-day event highlights Olympic winter competitions, featuring elite international men's and women's big air athletes.

The competition will take place on a 15-story steel scaffold jump structure that will be installed at SunTrust Park. 800 tons of snow will also be brought in to create a surface on which the world's best freeskiers and snowboarders can perform. Athletes will drop into an approximately 40-degree in-run, then launch themselves off the jump at speeds up to 40 miles per hour to perform their biggest tricks while traveling up to 70-feet in the air.

Some of the athletes include U.S. Freeski Olympians Julia Krass and Maggie Voisin, as well as two-time Olympic medalist, Nick Goepper. In addition, Olympic gold medalists Red Gerard, Jamie Anderson, and the 2018-19 FIS Snowboard Overall Crystal Globe Winner, Chris Corning, will represent the U.S. Snowboard Team.
