Here's how the competition works:
Competitors go one at a time using short skis and poles
Head and chest should face the finish line at all times while their hips and legs turn
Skiers wear colored knee patches to help the judges score
Time, Turns, Style and Air determine the winner
The setup of the course has some specific rules as well.
An Olympic moguls course is usually about 250 meters or almost the length of three football fields
Skiers are traveling 15 to 20 feet per second
The moguls course is separated by 2 jumps or kickers that are roughly 2-feet high
Competitors perform tricks to accumulate more points.
Seven judges decide the winner...two judges watch the height of the air that's 25 percent of the score ... the other five judges evaluate the turns that's half of the total score...there is also points given for speed
The United States has won 9 of the 36 Olympic medals given in the sport of Freestyle Mogul skiing .
And those are your Rules of the Game.
