Flashback to the 80’s with Mike Douglas and Johnny Decesare.

Freestyle_skiing_jump2Freestyle skiing has been contested at the Winter Olympic Games since the 1992 Winter Games in AlbertvilleFrance. It was a demonstration sport at the 1988 Winter Olympics, with moguls, aerials, and ballet events. Moguls became an official medal sport at the 1992 games, while aerials and ballet were still demonstration events. At the 1994 games, aerials also became an official medal event and the ski ballet competition was dropped. For the2010 Winter Olympics, ski cross was added to the program while the 2014 Winter Olympics had ski halfpipe added.
