Aerials is a sport of the freestyle skiing discipline in which athletes perform various in-air tricks. Aerialists ski off 2-4 meter jumps, that propel them up to 20 meters in the air. Once in the air, aerialists perform multiple flips and twists before landing on an inclined landing hill.
Aerial skiing is a judged sport, and competitors receive a score based on their jump performance. The jumps receive a score out of 10 comprised of: air (0-2 points - 20% of the score), form (0-5 points - 50% of the score), and landing (0-3 points - 30% of the score).
Instead of perfecting their flips and twists over the snow, aerial skiers try out their new maneuvers on ramps that launch them over huge swimming pools, as seen at the Utah Olympic Park.
Being the premier club, PCSS has the opportunity to work side by side with the US Ski Team athletes and coaches all summer long.
