We’ve utilised our patented Whitelines R&D techniques (ahem…) and come up with the top stats you’ll need to play out your very own slopestyle event from the comfort of your coach/the bus/tube. PLus we’ve gone with Top Trumps tradition and included some truly cringe-worthy pictures of our favourite Olympians; you already know the rules, but here’s the low down on our unique ratings system:


Simple really, you choose if you think age before beauty holds true, or if being able to throw a pre-pubescent triple cork is more impressive and play accordingly.


Again who wins here is down to player’s preference.

Date of First Triple

As these things are usually held tight to the chest for a while, we’ve gone with first appearance on the internet. Torstein is the ultimate to have in this case; his frontside triple cork 1440 was a world first, and possibly still one of the most stylish to date. By ‘triple’ we mean any trick where the rider goes upside down three times.

X Games Medals

We thought rather than tallying all medals ever obtained we’d go for just those earned at the Winter X Games, normally the biggest event on the slopestyle calender. We know this gives a couple of guys like Billy and Jamie a bit of a disadvantage seeing as they haven’t been invited yet, but we have a feeling they’ll make up for it in other categories…

Highest Score

Should read as ‘highest slopestyle score we could find online.’ Not super scientific, but we feel it gives a good idea of how the games could go.

Radness Rating

The most important stat, obviously. The Official Whitelines Radness Rating system takes into account all of the above statistics, plus others such as total magazine photos, web series popularity, signature video game graphics quality and trouser tightness, to name but a few. Oh, and a quick office poll…
