Slalom

Slalom skiing is probably the most popular skill among recreational skiers. Performed on one ski, this is the skill that most beginner and novice skiers strive to accomplish, and what the elite skiers manage to make look effortless.

Trick

Trick skiing is a discipline that demands a high level of balance, skill, and creativity. Unlike the other classic disciplines, you’re up against the clock and are judged on the performance of your trick selections.

Trick Competition Format

A trick course is approximately 175m long, and is marked at either end by 2 fixed buoys, positioned 15 meters apart. Each contestant is allowed two 20 second passes through the trick course and may perform as many tricks as he/she desires, given the time allotted. At the conclusion of both runs, the skier will record a score that is based up the numeric value allocated to each of the successfully performed tricks.

Jump

Ski jumping is by far the most extreme discipline in Classic, 3 event skiing. Performed on two specially designed skis, coupled with a helmet and padded wetsuit, contestants approach the ramp at lightening speeds, and can soar through the air at distances of up to 300 feet!
