Mogul Skiing is one of the greatest challenges a skier can face and most commonly watch during the Winter Olympics. Athletes negotiate a course comprised of a series of bumps or moguls with a jump table in middle and then continue down the course.

The incredible skill, athleticism and courage of top mogul skiers makes it look easy, as they race straight down the fall line at lightning speeds. Athletes can compete as singles or the always exciting duals.
Slopestyle is an always exciting sport in which athletes ski a course that includes a variety of rails, jumps and other park features. Slopestyle is one of the most accessible snow sports, as virtually every ski resort has a terrain park where recreational and aspiring athletes can learn to jump, slide and jib. On the world stage slopestyle is most commonly watched during the Winter olympics, X-Games and Dew Tour.
You will see both recreational and competitive slopestyle athletes perform spins, grinds, grabs and flips which in competition are scored for amplitude, originality, quality of tricks and style.
