A lot of people are excited about the slopestyle snowboard course at the 2014 Winter Games now that Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev has given fans a sneak peek.

Sobolev didn't attempt any over-the-top tricks on his run, but he gave viewers a clear view of what athletes will be facing.

A few boarders have been pulled out of the event after sustaining injuries on this controversial slope -- including Norway's Torstein Horgmo and Shaun White of the U.S.
