Marko Grilc of Slovenia hopes to compete at the 2014 Olympics, where he'll be 30 years old. "It's just cool that the IOC recognizes that's where snowboarding has been headed lately and they're giving it a chance," he says. "For me, I've had such a long career that it's a bummer slopestyle wasn't in before, but I'm hyped it got that chance."
