Aerials & Moguls Ski Freestyle Europan Cup
The European Freestyle Cup will once again be held in Airolo. Freestyle moguls and aerials athletes from various European countries will compete on the moguls and jumps of Airolo-Pesciüm. A show that is worth seeing live...don't miss it!
The moguls specialists descend on a mogul track making two jumps per descent. They are awarded scores based on the technique of skiing between the humps, the quality and difficulty of the jumps and the speed. This discipline is 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 figures and flips before landing. A jury assigns a score to each performance. It is an Olympic discipline since Lillehammer 1994.
The national training centre
Airolo has a good tradition in hosting training or freestyle events. In addition to the traditional European Cup event, Airolo hosted two Moguls World Cup events (2004 and 2018).
With the creation of the NLZ freestyle we seek to improve the quality of training through the creation of FIS approved tracks for the World Cup. The possibility of using artificial snow would allow the start of training already in mid-end November ensuring the conduct of the preparation and the races even in winter poor in snow.
