Skiers compete simultaneously in groups of four and hurtle down the specially prepared track as quickly as possible. Only the first two of each run are qualified for the next stage until the grand finale.
Qualifications take place on the first day for men's and women's competitions. The semi finals and finals take place on the last day as some of the biggest names in the sport compete for the title.
Ski Cross gained Olympic status in 2010 promising a bright future for this spectacular discipline. Many alpine skiers go for Ski Cross enjoying the challenge of a technical course in conjunction with a freestyle culture.
Free to watch and a great spectator sport.
