course: moguls competition
Event that is held on a steep straight course with bumps that the skier uses to turn; two jumps are integrated into the run.
Stand reserved for the judges who award marks based on three criteria: turn quality, jump quality and speed.
Wide, relatively flat area where the skier can stop safely.
Barrier bordering the course that stops the skier in the event of a fall.
Line marking the end of a moguls run; an electronic timekeeping system calculates the skiers’ finish times.
Space between the two gate poles through which the skier must pass; a moguls course usually has nine control gates.
Each of the mounds that dot the course; to obtain a high score, the skier must demonstrate control, flexibility and speed over the moguls.
Accumulations of snow designed to allow the skier to execute a jump; only straight jumps are allowed in a moguls competition.
