I love the slo-mo. That hill has so much terrain to ski! I would love to ski there. Plus we have to remember that all of these guys are making beautiful turns on skis w/ sidecuts of, what, 33 mts or some where up in that range? Unreal skill.

THE PERFECT TURN by TED LIGETY Ligety GS_2013 1 day ago   01:52

What does the perfect turn look like? We asked World and Olympic champion Ted Ligety to answer the question and hopefully get you excited to try achieve one next time you click into your skis.

The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup is the top international circuit of Alpine Skiing competitions staged annually. It is considered the premier competition in alpine ski racing together with the quadrennial Olympic Winter Games and the biennial FIS Alpine World Ski Championships. Some experts event consider winning the World Cup to be athletically a more valuable title than winning gold at the Olympic Winter Games or the World Championships, since it requires a competitor to ski at an extremely high level in several events throughout the season, and not just in one race. Today, the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup races are held primarily at famous ski resorts in the European Alps, along with regular stops in Scandinavia, North America, and Far East Asia. Competitors attempt to score a maximum of points during the season in five events: slalom, giant slalom, super-G, downhill and super combined. The fifth event, super-combined, was introduced in 2005 and generally consists of a shorter downhill race and a one-run slalom. Sometimes the downhill is replaced by a super-G. Alpine was added to the Olympic winter schedule in 1936.
