Trick rules: The
giant slalom is almost a race downhill. Gates are put along the hill.
The object is to go as fast as you can, down the hill. Each
snowboarder has two chances to get better timing; if a gate is missed,
you will be disqualified. The half pipe is like freestyle skiing; they
do tricks and jumps with a trench shaped like a U. Their speed comes
from going up and down the sides of the U.
How the judges
decide on a winner: The five judges each give the boarder a different
score based on moves, spins, landing, flips and the height of the
Front flip- a cartwheel without using your hands.
Rodeo flip- 360 degree turn with a back flip
Stiffie- to do this trick you need to do a 9- degree turn then lift up your legs in front of you and grab the board between your legs with your hand.
