    SOCHI 2014 OLYMPICS MOGUL SKIING REPORT

    Mogul skiing is a type of freestyle skiing where skiers display tricks, jumps, and their turning abilities. Mogul skiing is considered a demonstration sport, as the skiers display their ability to turn through bumps (moguls).

    Moguls are a series of bumps on a trail formed when skiers push snow into piles as they perform short-radius turns. Skiers must ski down a steep hill whilst skiing around moguls and performing tricks, giving them the opportunity to show off their skiing abilities. They also need to keep their knees together when skiing. They have to ski as fast as they are able to ski, as they are judged by that and their turning style.

    Mogul skiing is a winter sport, which means it has to be in a place where it is cold, has snow, and has to have steep hills. Mogul skiing‘s first official appearance in the Olympics was in 1992. They are judged by tricks, speed, and turning abilities. They also need to do 2 jumps.

    In Mogul Skiing, skiers need to prove their skiing abilities, like the ability to swiftly turn around bumps as they go downhill at blazing speeds. The skiers also have the chance to show off or hotdog.

    Canada’s mogul skiers are amazing. For example, Alexandre Bildeau won gold in both 2010 and 2014, and Justine Dufor won gold in 2014. Mogul skiing seems pretty hard to do, but Canadians seem dominant in this sport.

    MOGULS SKIING

    Moguls skiing is a form of freestyle skiing where you need to show your skills to jump and turn through bumps. Mogul’s is classified as a demonstration sport as the competitors need to demonstrate their skiing ability. Mogul’s is now an Olympic sport.

    Both men and woman ski down a hill as fast as they can while avoiding the mounds that are scattered randomly throughout the hill. When the skiers hit the slope, they are expected to do a variety of stunts. For example the skier can do turns and flips. When they land, they must not fall because that decreases their chances of going to the final round. The twelve men and twelve women with the best scores go into the final round. The skier with the best score combined walks out with gold.

    Mogul’s skiing is a winter skiing sport done in alpine and snowy areas. Mogul’s was certified an official World Cup Sport in 1972. Twenty years later in 1992 was when the sport was first featured in the Olympics.

    The purpose of Moguls skiing is to show the ability of a good skier. Moguls came from the men and women who “hotdogged” under a chair lift. They may have done it under a chair lift because the skiers can get more attention as this is the easiest place to be seen on a ski hill.

    If you would like to start doing this sport, talk to the Canadian experts! Sisters Justine and Chloe’ Dufour-Lapointe won gold and silver in the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games. Two Canadian men won gold and silver as well. Alex Bilodeau won gold and Mikael Kingsbury won silver. Maybe you can be like these amazing skiers in the future!

    Mogul skiing

    Mogul skiing is a form of free style skiing. It is a demonstration sport that shows the ability to turn though bumps. Skiers must show balance, turning, and tricks.

    When you ski down a mogul run there is a steep hill covered in large mounds. Mogul skiing is a combination of speed, showmanship, and the ability to perform aerial manoeuvres. There are many lengths of skies. Also skiers wear patches on their shines so the judges can see if their knees are together.

    In the 1988 Calgary Winter Games moguls was a demonstration sport and in the 1992 the Olympics became a real sport. In the Olympics free style skiing was affectionately known as “hot dogging”. The name seemed perfect; it was a mix of acrobatic tricks and jumps.

    This hot dogging while skiing moguls is to show a skiers ability to do flips, jumps and tricks so the judges can give them points. The main purpose is to show how well they can turn. Skiers turn as quickly as possible to get down the hill.

    There are many Canadians who have entered the Olympics for skiing, but the most famous skiers are Chloe Dufour – Lapointe who won silver and her sister Justine Dufour – Lapointe who won gold in woman’s skiing 2014. In 2010, Alexander Bilodeau won gold also, Mikael Kingsbury won silver. Canada is very successful in this sport.

    Mogul skiing is a form of freestyle skiing, Mogul Skiing is also a demonstration sport which means it shows a skiers ability to ski around bumps which are called Moguls.

    Mogul Skiing is judged by a skier’s ability to perform certain tricks like “hot dogging”. Time matters in this sport the less time you take to finish the course the higher your score is. The terrain is covered in bumps which are named Moguls which are formed when snow isn’t cleared away from a ski hill and when it snows the Moguls grow. Also the knees have to be together and covered in patches. The ski hill is about 200 to 270 meters long.
    The skier also has to jump twice to perform aerial tricks.

    Mogul Skiing is performed where it snows and northern countries like Norway, Canada, and Finland. Mogul Skiing is also performed in the Olympics. Mogul Skiing was a Demonstration Sport in 1988 but did not become an official Olympic Sport until 1992.

    Mogul Skiing is used to show the ability to navigate around obstacles and perform aerial tricks. In short, to show how good the skier is.

    Canada has a fair share of great Mogul Skiers like sisters Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapoint who won women’s gold and silver medals in the 2014 winter Olympics and Mikeal Kingsbury who won men’s silver in the 2014 winter Olympics and Alexandre Bilodeau who won the 2010 Gold and 2014 Gold for Mogul Skiing.

    Mogul Skiing Report

    Mogul skiing, what is it? Mogul skiing is a form of freestyle skiing that takes place in the Winter Olympics. Mogul skiing is also a sport where you have to show the best of your ability by turning, jumping, and speed.

    When the athletes are Mogul Skiing, they have many challenges to face. They have to ski down very steep hills covered in moguls
    (bumps) and have to keep their knees together and slide between the moguls on skis. To help see if the skier’s knees are staying together, they wear knee patches. The athletes are also judged by how well they can jump and turn through moguls.

    It’s nearly impossible to ski in tropical, hot places because there is no snow! That’s why mogul skiers ski in northern places, where it is always cold enough for there to be snow.

    Mogul Skiing didn’t become an Olympic sport until the year 1992. Which is around 22 years since it became a sport in the Winter Olympics. Mogul Skiing is a farley new sport compared to some of the other winter sports in the Olympics.

    Canada does well in Mogul Skiing. We’ve gotten several gold medals, and many silver medals. Alex Bilodeau, a Canadian athlete won men’s gold medal in 2010 and 2014. Canada is also represented by women in the sport. For example, two sister in the Olympics, Chloe’ Dufour – Lapointe won gold medal in Mogul Skiing, and her sister Justine Dufour – Lapointe won silver in Mogul Skiing in the year 2014.

    Moguls

    Mogul skiing is a competitive Olympic freestyle sport. Skiers must show their ability to turn though bumps and jump. It’s basically a test for skiing.

    The medals in the moguls are determined by points from jumping, turning and tricks. Skiers go down a 40o hill. Turning and jumping over big jumps at least two times to show their ariel skills. What the judges are really looking for is the ability to ski fast without wiping out. Skiers must have their shins together or else they get disqualified.

    The Moguls take place in the winter Olympics and in cold, snowy, countries. Canada is doing the best currently in the sport. In 1972 it became an official world cup sport. In 1988 it became a demonstration sport in the Calgary winter Olympics. In 1992 it became an official winter Olympic sport for medals.

    The moguls show the abilities of a good skier by skiing fast, turning, jumping and doing tricks. It’s basically a big test for first time competitors.

    If you can ski fast, turn, and do tricks moguls might be the thing for you. Canada’s best mogul skiers are Chole and Justine Defour Lapointe with gold and sliver.
