The head-to-head matchups are the stuff of legends. I mean, Travis Rice verses Torstein Horgmo?

If you missed Day 1, you can watch the full replay, as well as highlights from the head-to-head matchups above.

Here are the Day 2 matchups for men’s quarterfinals and women’s semifinals, which begin at 9:30am MST. Watch live on You can also stream on the NST Youtube.

The rider’s left side of the course is north-facing and the snow conditions should be better than they were on Day 1. The rad thing about running the competition on the two sides of the NST zone is that it opens up features that may not have gotten a lot of play in 2021–there are at last 40 features in the entire area, so the room for creativity is huge and evolving every year as Mother Nature sets the stage with weather and snowpack. Check out the brackets, place your bets on the free-to-enter pool on Draftkings and tune in at 9:30am MST on Friday, January 28th to watch who emerges victorious at the Yeti Natural Selection 2022.
