Mogul skiing joins aerials in the awe-inspiring category. The incredible skill, athleticism and fluidity of the world’s top mogul skiers make it look easy, as they race straight down the hillside at lightning speeds. Competitors speed down the 29-degree mogul course and launch themselves off two jumps on the way down under scrutiny of a panel of seven judges. Marks are awarded for the technical quality of the skier’s turns (50%), the two upright aerial manoeuvres (25%) and speed (25%). While speed is a factor, the fastest skier does not necessarily win.
