Freestyle Skiing


Freestyle skiing is a gymnastic, aerial show. Skiers go off jumps to perform stunts like somersaults and twists, or take on mogul courses where it's a challenge just to stay upright, let alone do tricks. A recent addition in the freestyle category is the "cross," a race that incorporates lots of jumps and turns, inspired by the snowboard cross event.
