Freestyle skiing and snowboarding is quite simply any skiing or snowboarding that includes performing tricks.
When freestyling, a snowboarder or skier often utilizes natural or man-made features such as rails, jumps/kickers, boxes, rollers, logs, rocks, and other slope features to perform tricks. Competitions incorporating freestyle tricks in a man-made freestyle park are referred to as slopestyle competitions. Freestyle tricks could include, spins, like 180’s or 360’s, Ollies, Nollies, Nose Grabs, Methods and Board Slides to name but a few.
