Olympic champion Cassie Sharpe will be aiming for her first International Ski Federation (FIS) Freeski Halfpipe World Cup victory of the season at Mammoth Mountain in California.
The 27-year-old Canadian suffered a concussion at September's season-opener in Cardrona, making her comeback last week at the X Games in Aspen with a bronze medal.
She will be trying to improve on this at the American resort, with qualifying scheduled for tomorrow and the finals on Saturday (February 1).
Compatriot Rachel Karker is expected to be another main contender, claiming second and third places in the World Cup so far and triumphing at the X Games.
Valeriya Demidova of Russia leads the Halfpipe World Cup standings with 205.00 points, just in front of China's Zhang Kexin on 200.00 and Li Fanghui on 146.00.
Noah Bowman of Canada and Aaron Blunck of the United States have dominated in the men's World Cup season so far, both claiming a third-place, runner-up and first-place.
Blunck is considered the main hope for the home crowd tomorrow, but teammate Alex Ferreira could also top the podium after achieving X Games gold in Aspen.
Two-times Olympic champion David Wise and season-opener winner Birk Irving are also due to compete for the US.
Bowman and Blunck are tied at the top of the World Cup standings on 240.00, followed by Irving on 200.00.
