There are five Olympic qualifying events in total, two of which — the 2013 Dew Tour and the Copper Grand Prix— have already wrapped up. The next three Grand Prix events will help determine which snowboarders will represent the US in Sochi, as the riders with the best two finishes of the five earning a spot on the team. In total, four riders of each gender will go to Sochi for halfpipe, and four for slopestyle. The final team will be announced at the end of January after the end of the Mammoth Grand Prix.

Heading into this third Olympic qualifier, here’s how the US men’s slopestyle team is stacking up:

1. Chas Guldemond — 1,800

2. Shaun White — 1,320

3. Sage Kotsenburg — 1,250
