Atlanta Braves SunTrust Park Big Air

About 900,000 pounds of snow sit inside the Atlanta Braves’ SunTrust Park, where the world’s best big air snowboarders and skiers will descend a 15-story ramp for a unique World Cup event Friday and Saturday.

NBCSN airs live coverage of snowboard finals Friday and ski finals Saturday, both at 7 p.m. ET. NBC airs coverage Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m. All coverage streams on NBCSports.com/live and the NBC Sports app.

Each field features an Olympic champion: Americans Jamie Anderson and Red Gerard in snowboard and Norwegian Øystein Bråten, Swiss Sarah Höfflin and Canadian Dara Howell in ski.

Other big air events have been held at famous stadiums, including inside Fenway Park in 2016, the Beijing 2008 Olympic Stadium, the San Francisco Giants’ AT&T Park and outside the Rose Bowl.

In other sports, the men’s Alpine skiing World Cup has four straight days of races in Italy beginning with a super-G and downhill in Val Gardena on Friday and Saturday.

Americans Tommy Ford, coming off his first World Cup win in Beaver Creek, Colo., and double Olympic champion Ted Ligety are podium contenders in Alta Badia, where a giant slalom and parallel giant slalom are slated Sunday and Monday.

The women race a downhill and combined in Val d’Isere, France, on Saturday and Sunday. Mikaela Shiffrin was due to race speed at the venue for the first time in her career before withdrawing on Thursday. Italians Sofia Goggia and Federica Brignone are among the contenders.
