The giant slalom
 

Test your style on the ski run in the Savoleyres Racing Stadium !

Giant slalom, appearing in 1950 at alpine skiing world championships in Aspen, is a technical discipline such as slalom but faster. The gates are made of two sticks connected by a blue or red banner.

The giant slalom requires precision, a good sense of rhythm and a good power to tackle every corner at best. As the name suggests, the course of a giant slalom is longer than a slalom. Also, the gates are more spaced, giving wider turns.

Skiers must pass a minimum of 30 gates separated from each other of at least ten meters.

 

The Mini KL or Flying Kilometre
 

Achieve your maximum speed in complete safety.

Speed skiing or flying kilometre is a winter sport that involves descending a snowy track as fast as possible with skis.

It was not until the 1930s in Switzerland (in ski resorts of Mürren and Saint-Moritz) to have the first speed skiing competitions with timed tests.

The sporting regulations merely intended to ensure the safety of the skier and sporting fairness.

Speed skiing is the non-motorized sport where speed peaks are the highest after parachuting.

 

 

Ski Cross
 

The supreme test in this High Five! There will be four of you at the start, but only one of you will finish.

Ski cross is a type of skiing competition, born in the late 1990s in the United States.

The principle of ski cross is quite simple. Inspired by motocross, it consists of a running along a distance of about 600 meters and 33% incline, composed of various natural and artificial elements such as bumps, jumps or high-banked turns.

A group of four skiers start simultaneously and attempt to reach the end of the course as quickly as possible. The first two to cross the finish line will advance to the next round. 

At the end, the final and semi-final rounds determine 1st to 4th and 5th to 8th places, respectively.

 

Waterslide
 

“Finish without getting soaked!” A fun competition for skiers or snowboarders. Competitors must surf across a water pit and try to reach the other side without getting wet.
