  • Description

    Freestyle skiing, or hot-dogging as it is more popularly known among its United States' followers, is the latest craze in the winter sport world. The spectator can see three different styles of hot-dogging, ballet, aerial and mogul....all performed at considerable risk to the participant.

    The hot-dogger has often been called the "mountain idiot". But now his acrobatic antics have been classified officially as freestyle skiing.

    The craze started about five years ago among people bored with the ordinary routine of downhill and slalom events, and last weekend one of the first major competitions of the hot-dogging season was held at Park City, Utah.

    Winners at Park City picked up points towards this year's American Grand Prix title, and gained valuable experience for the world titles to be held at Heavenly Valley, California next months.
