Beijing 2022 Olympischer Freestyle Skiing Hindernisparcours

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Die 2022 Olympischen Winterspiele, offiziell die XXIV Olympischen Winterspiele, finden in Peking, China, statt. Hindernisparcours ist ein Wintersport für Skiläufer oder Snowboarder, die eine Strecke mit diversen Hindernissen befahren.

Points are scored for amplitude, originality and quality of tricks. The discipline has its roots in action sports like skateboarding and BMX and has very successfully crossed over into the snow sports worlds of skiing and snowboarding.

Skiers use Twin-tip skis for their symmetry since they often go large portions of the course backward (referred to as "switch") and for their balanced weight so as to not destabilise spins.

Freestyle skiing slopestyle first appeared at the Sochi Olympics in 2014.
