In skiing you have to deal with the winter weather elements. This includes various snow conditions ranging from brick hard ice to soft, melting snow. The snow also has a way of transforming its shape after you have skied on it. If several skiers ski the same course down the hill then the snow consistency and placement will change. You will build up "ruts". Ruts are grooves that outline where all the skiers have skied. These ruts can become very big. Often times these ruts and quick changes in elevation will produce mini jumps on the ski hill. When you catch air you will definitely slow down your speed. First of all the wind resistance will pull you back. Second of all you lose contact with the snow. You want to have contact with the snow on the flat bottom of your ski as much as possible. Anytime you put your ski edge against the snow to turn or recover you are slowing yourself down. Ski racers have learned to avoid catching air from jumps by bending their knees and holding their center of gravity down when they go over the jump. This helps to minimize your trajectory into the air.

There is no such event as "speed skiing" but Downhill skiing is basically the equivalent. In downhill racers go through a set of gates which are spaced about 100 meters apart. The objective is to get down the mountain as fast as possible. The racers usually go up to 150mph down the hill.
Drive it downhill.
Downhill skiing is the fastest as you can ski up to 100mph! The second fastest is Super Giant Slalom (Super G), which is basically straight down almost.
No, unless the slope is in favor of the drop. Meaning its a downhill. If the slope is downwards, the speed may increase with distance, since more potential energy exists. So distance increases with speed if moving downhill
According to Wikipedia: Some racers in the high speed skiing disciplines (Giant Slalom, Super Giant Slalom, downhill, speed skiing) use curved poles that are bent to shape around their bodies while they are in a tuck position, in order to minimize air drag.
Drive it downhill.
It will if the hill is steep enough
You can. But they are not built and designed for the same thing, such as the speed downhill skiers achieve.
For regular downhill skiing the average is about 15-20 mph Olympic ski racing averages 40-50 mph and The fastest recorded speed is 156 mph here is my source http://www.trails.com/facts_9654_how-fast-do-downhill-skiers.html
I believe that it is skiing and Speed skiing.
The cast of Downhill Speed - 2004 includes: Orlando Martinez as himself Johnny Waddell as himself
depends, if that was the constant speed at all times uphill and downhill, and the times are both the same. then the average speed would be 15mph
There is alpine skiing, cross country,Nordic,freestyle, speed skiing, acrobatic and ski jumping
No, weight does not effect speed downhill because the acceleration is only due to gravity, which does not depend on mass of the body if friction is not present.
This really depends on a large number of facts. 1. Professional or amateur? If you are a professional skier your skiing speed can go up to 130 km/h (80 mph). You will not find someone skiing that fast out of the ski trail. Specially if you are a beginner, you don't have to worry about speed. 2.Cathegory? In professional skiing, there are a few categories. There is slalom, giant slalom, super g and downhill. The last one is the fastest and it is here that competitors reach a speed of over 80 mph. Super G is not as fast, and it continues that way down to slalom, which is considered the slowest skiing discipline.
The speed will increase.The speed will increase.The speed will increase.The speed will increase.
Downhill Speed - 2004 was released on: USA: 18 December 2004 (Tahoe Adventure Film Festival)
alpine skiing, crosscountry skiing, figure skating, ice hockey, Nordic combined, ski jumping, speed skating, luge, short track speed skating, freestyle skiing. Speed skiing, bandy, and skijoring were semonstration sports but never were titled OFFICIAL WINTER GAME SPORTS.
Parallel skiing is an advanced technique in downhill skiing where the skis are held in two straight lines under the body. This technique is generally learned gradually as a modification of the beginner technique. The beginner's stance is called "the snow plow" or "the wedge", and the skis are held in a V shape with the tips of the skis almost but not quite touching. The wider apart the skis are at the back, the slower a person will go down the hill. In parallel skiing, speed is controlled by how much the skier goes across the hill versus down the hill - the trajectory of the skier relative to the slope controls speed.
When a mouse goes skiing, it means that you will will lose your speed that will cause you to fall down.
i have more speed than you . Watch your speed on this downhill stretch of road.
