Die 30 km Pisten in Airolo sind ein perfektes Spielfeld für alle die auf dem Schnee Hindernisse und Sprünge suchen.
Den Freunden des Freestyle Skiings schenken die Abfahrten in unserem Gebiet unvergleichliche Begeisterungsmomente: Dank den natürlichen Gegebenheiten verfügen die Hänge des Leventinatals über zahlreiche strategische Punkte an denen Buckel und Sprünge geübt werden können. Es erstaunt daher auch nicht, dass Airolo seit einigen Jahren zur Basis für die Wintertrainigs von Freestyle-Teams und –Athleten geworden ist. Ausserdem haben sich in Airolo verschiedene Sportler in dieser Sportart ausgezeichnet: Katrin Müller – Nationale Skicross Swissski, Nicole Gasparini – Moguls, Marco Tadé – Moguls und Debora Scanzio – Nationale Moguls Swissski.
Mogul specialists make two jumps as they make their way down a track. They are given a score based on the technique they use when skiing between the moguls, as well as the speed, quality and difficulty of their jumps. This discipline has been an Olympic sport since Albertville 1992.
In the jumps, also known as aerials, skiers jump on snow-covered trampolines that allow them to perform different tricks and somersaults. A jury gives a score to each performer. It has been an Olympic discipline since Lillehammer 1994.
Airolo has a great tradition in hosting freestyle events as well as training camps. The aerials and moguls teams have been training in this town for several years. With the creation of NLZ freestyle we seek to improve the quality of training thanks to the construction of FIS-approved slopes for the World Cup. Having the option of being able to use artificial snowmaking facilities would allow athletes to start training as early as mid-November, ensuring races can be properly prepared for even when winter snow conditions are poor. From late November to mid-December most of the national teams travel to Ruka, Finland, as it is the only resort with adequate facilities - Airolo would be an excellent alternative in central Europe.
