Freestyle and Mogul Skiing

Mogul Skiing and its Rules

Mogul Skiing is a freestyle skiing competition consisting of one timed run down a steep, heavily moguled course. Moguls are a series of bumps that are pushed into mounds when skiers make sharp turns. They can also be made artificially.



  • Competitors go one at a time using short skis and pole
  • Skiers wear colored knee patches to help the judges score
  • Time, Turns, Style and Air determine the winner
  • The Setup of the course also 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
