The Canadian Freestyle Ski Team

Canada has a long history of excelling in freestyle skiing disciplines. Since moguls and aerials were introduced as demonstration sports at the Calgary Winter Olympics in 1988, the Canadian Freestyle Ski Team has won 12 Olympic medals.

According to the Canadian Sports Centre, freestyle skiing is one of Canada’s top three medal-producing sports.

Canada’s Freestyle Ski Team, nicknamed “the Canadian Air Force,” finished an impressive 2013 season. The team won a combined nine World Championship and 42 World Cup medals.

The Canadian freestyle skiing athletes are gold medal favourites at the 2014 Winter Olympics, where they will compete in all freestyle disciplines, including the new events slopestyle and halfpipe.
