These amazing freestylers include some the pioneers and icons of the sport as well as some of the youngest, most exciting freestyle skiers in the world today. Freestyle skiing is an sup-sport of skiing that requires intense skill, acrobatics and creativity. It was first demonstrated at the 1988 Olympics. Skiers compete in moguls, slopestyle, aerials, or ballet. These skiers are from all over the world - Austria, America, Canada, and China.
