Ski cross is a type of skiing competition. Despite its being a timed racing event, it is often considered part of freestyle skiing because it incorporates terrain features traditionally found in freestyle. Ski cross courses have both naturally occurring terrain and artificial features including big-air jumps and high-banked turns. What sets ski cross apart from other alpine skiing disciplines is that there’s more than one skier racing down the course.  Any intentional contact with other competitors leads to disqualification.
First introduced to the winter olympics in 2010, this sport is exciting to watch and quickly becoming a favorite with sports spectators everywhere.
