Hey it’s Tim and for anyone that has struggled with ski ‘technique’ you will want to try and get yourself to Canada Olympic Park this weekend. The 2016 FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup. The best freestylers in the world will be competing for big prizes this weekend.
Each race is about 23 seconds for the men and 26 seconds for the women on a 230-metre long course. That’s four moguls per second on slopes that can have a 28-degree pitch. And then there is also big air jumps halfway down the slope.
Lots of great viewing areas and the forecast is calling for mild temperatures this weekend. Details can be found here
