Freestyle skiing originated from America in the 1960s. It was the desire for freedom that enabled this brand new thrilling skiing style to take shape. Freestyle skiing has grown into its maturity after an evolution of several decades. The FIS freestyle skiing is divided into two major competitions: Aerials and Moguls.


Mogul skiing is a freestyle skiing competition consisting of one timed run of free skiing on a steep, heavily moguled course, stressing technical turns, aerial maneuvers and speed.


The first competition involving mogul skiing occurred in 1971. The FIS created the Freestyle World Cup Circuit in 1980. As an important international competition of freestyle skiing, the Freestyle Skiing World Cup is hosted by the FIS and held each year as a circuit in different places around the world.

 

 


With the success of winning the Winter Olympics and the rapid development of Chongli area, plus the construction and preparation of professional competition terrains, Thaiwoo is honored to be selected by the FIS as the competition site for the 2016/2017 Freestyle Skiing Moguls World Cup.
