  • Description

    Free-style skiing -- called " hot-dogging" by its detractors - has become the latest and fastest-growing winter sports craze in the United States.

    Its appeal, according to those who have come to revel in it, lies in its total freedom from all the traditional and accepted rules of skiing. Free-style means exactly that -- the skier gets to the bottom of the course any way he wants to, or can. He can fall, pause or even stop altogether on the way there, but so long as he eventually reaches the bottom he's achieved his objective.

    Free-style has its beginnings in the mountains around Aspen, Colorado, but now it's spread to virtually all the country's ski slopes. It's even become organised to the extent of national competitions -- the most recent of which, the U.S. Men's National, was held at Stowe, Vermont.
