I know some people affiliated with F.I.S that have attended some major board meetings recently.
the word is hafpipe is in for sure..... and there trying to get slope in too.
seems the olympics are losing all of there young audience and trying to get it back through young "extreme" sports like skiing and snowboarding.
thats just what ive heard
and ski halfpipe will be a demonstration sport in the 2010 Vancouver games
