Rosa Khutor Extreme Park is situated to the West of Rosa Plateau at an altitude of 1100-1200 m.

In September 2008 the International Olympic Committee approved the transfer of the Freestyle center to the territory of the Rosa Khutor Plateau and its unification with the Snowboard park for a more compact venue. Thus the location and the design of the venue is highly convenient for spectators and for athletes alike. 

The capacity of the Snowboard park is of 6250 spectator seats, while the Freestyle center is for 4 000 spectator seats.

The venues were completed by the end of 2011. In Ferbruary and March 2012 Rosa Khutor Extreme Park welcomed its first official competitions: a stage of Snowboard Cup of Russia and a stage of Snowboard Europe Cup, as well as a stage of Freestyle Cup of Russia and a stage of Freestyle Europe Cup, which was granted the status of a Supercontinental Cup.

The main competitions in the 2012-2013 season were stages of the FIS World Cup in Snowboard and Freestyle that were held in the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park from 8th to 20th of February 2013. Such competitions in all the snowboard and freestyle disciplines simultaneously were held for the first time ever. More than 750 athletes from over 45 countries participated in the event. In March 2013 Rosa Khutor Extreme park hosted international competitions in parasnowboarding. This discipline will have its debut in the Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi 2014.

FREESTYLE COMPETITIONS INCLUDED IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES PROGRAM:

AERIAL SKIING

 

Aerial skiing. Aerialists ski off 2-4 meter jumps, built completely out of snow, that propel them up to 6 meters in the air. Once in the air, professional aerialists perform multiple somersaults and twists before landing on a 34 to 39-degree inclined landing hill about 30 meters in length. 

Aerial skiing is a judged sport, and competitors receive a score based on jump takeoff (20%), jump form (50%) and landing (30%). A degree of difficulty (DD) is then factored in for a total score. Skiers are judged on a cumulative score of two jumps. These scores do not generally carry over to the next round.

MOGUL

 

Mogul skiing is a type of freestyle skiing where skiers display tricks, jumps and turning abilities for onlookers (or judges) on a mogul slope.

During a competition run, contestants navigate around the moguls and execute tricks such as the Cork 720, D-Spin, Back Lay, Back X, and Back Full. The slope is steep, between 24 and 32 degrees, and about 200–270 meters long. The jumps in a moguls competition are smaller than those in aerial competitions, and are often referred to as «kickers» for their steep take off (that «kicks» the athlete up into the air).

SKI CROSS

 

Ski Cross is a type of skiing competition. Despite its being a timed racing event, it is considered part of freestyle skiing because it incorporates terrain features traditionally found in freestyle.

In a time trial or qualification round, every competitor skis down the course, which is built to encompass both naturally occurring terrain and artificial features like jumps, rollers, or banks. After the time trial, the fastest 32 skiers (fastest 16 if not 32 competitors) compete in a knockout (KO)-style series in rounds of four. A group of four skiers start simultaneously and attempt to reach the end of the course. The first two to cross the finish line will advance to the next round. At the end, the final and semi-final rounds determine 1st to 4th and 5th to 8th places, respectively.

HALF-PIPE

 

Half-Pipe Skiing competition includes a series of tricks and jumps in the halfpipe, which is two downward sloping, curved ramps made of snow facing each other.

Halfpipe skiers go from one of side of the halfpipe to the other. The competition is scored based on difficult and execution of the tricks.

Half-pipe skiing was formally endorsed by the International Ski Federation in June 2010, and was approved by the International Olympic Committee in April 2011 to be an official sport 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi.

SLOPESTYLE

 

Slopestyle is a type of winter sporting event where the goal is to perform the most difficult tricks while getting the highest amplitude off of jumps, with an emphasis on performing different types of tricks instead of doing one great trick repeatedly. It originated as a snowboarding competition format, but now this style of competition is also introduced in skiing.

Slopestyle is one of the most popular events at the Winter X Games. It will become an Olympic event, in both skiing and snowboarding forms, at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi

Once qualifications are complete, racers are placed in a head to head knockout format, starting with 16 athletes and moving to a final race for 1st and 2nd. uses a much longer course with gates set further apart (spaced 20–27 meters apart), resulting in even higher speeds, while racing against an opponent on a similar course place parallel to the other course.
