Default Freestyle skiing no longer so free

It was the '70s, and freestyle skiing was in its infancy.

Known better then as "hot dog" skiing, it was a free-form sport with few rules. Freestyle was about skiing outside the box, making your own way, drawing your own lines in the snow.

Each competition was broken down into three events - ballet, moguls and aerials - yet you never knew what to expect. And the accompanying scene was not to be missed: The setting was raucous, the music loud, the crowd rowdy.

Winners were chosen in each individual discipline, and an overall champion, the best skier that day, was crowned "King of the Mountain."

Individuality was emphasized, and creativity reigned - so much so that, in the years that followed, it affected every aspect of the sport, from fashion and equipment to style and technique.
