Freestyle skiing[edit]

According to the final quota allocation released on January 20, 2014, The British Virgin Islands had one athlete in qualification position.[6] Peter Crook became the first ever athlete to compete for his country in a snow sport. Crook finished in 27th position out of a field of 29 athletes in the qualification rounds for the men's freestyle skiing halfpipe competition, thus meaning he did not advance to the final. With a single athlete competing in a single event, the country did not win a medal at these Games.[7]
