What events are there in downhill skiing?

Downhill skiing consists of four main events which include Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super Giant Slalom, and Downhill. The different between these events is the placement of the gates. You also wear different gear and use different length skis for each event. Slalom - This event is when the ski gates are the closest together. Ski racers quickly navigate through the ski course. The ski gates "breakaway" as the ski racer hits them with their shin and/or arm as they ski by them. The reason ski racers hit the ski gates is to try to ski the straightest line possible down the ski slope. The straighter the line, the faster you go and the faster your run time. Ski racers bring the tip of their ski close to the ski gate and sometimes catch their ski tip and spin out. Ski racers were shin, arm, and hand guards plus a protective helmet. Giant Slalom has the gates farther apart then slalom. Ski racers do not hit the gates like they do in slalom. Therefore, they tend to wear less guards. However, a helmet is still required. Super Giant Slalom and the Downhill, in addition to Slalom and Giant Slalom, are usually done in professional ski racing or at Junior Olympic ski races for aspiring professional ski racers. The length of skis varies from year to year. Typically, though, slalom requires a much shorter ski then giant slalom. Super Giant Slalom and the Downhill require longer skis. Ski racers usually wear skin tight "GS" suits in a range of wild colors. I know because I used to compete in downhill ski racing.

What is the proper method for tucking in downhill ski racing?

You might not be familiar with the term "tucking". A downhill ski racer is tucking the hill when you see them crouch down into a tight posture and ski straight down the hill. Often they tuck in the Downhill and Super Giant Slalom events. In this case, they will turn slightly when tucking or go back and forth between tucking and turning. Tucking is also called bombing the hill. Having proper technique is important as you cut down the wind resistance. Remember downhill ski racers want to ski as fast as they possible can so they can have the quickest run time. Therefore, they always want to find ways to minmize wind resistance. In order to tuck properly you need to bend your knees and and huddle over your knees with your chest. Your feet should be hip width apart so you have good stability. Flatten your back as much as possible. Keep your hands close together and have the angle of your poles match that of your back. Don't stick your poles straight up in the air because that is wrong (and the sign of an amateur). Hold this position. If your legs burn then you know you are doing it correctly!

Why do downhill ski racers wear helmets?

Have you ever been skiing and fallen, crashed, or "had a yard sale" as they typically call it in downhill ski racing? It can hurt. Downhill ski racers can reach alarming speeds and need protective between their bodies and the hard, ice and snow beneath them. Ski racers have always been known to be a little crazy, which is true because they can fall so hard that their skis break in half! Downhill ski racers wear helmets because concussions used to be a common occurence. A ski racer might catch a tip on a ski gate and fall head first down the hill. You pick up speed when you are sliding down the steep hill of ice and sometimes crash into other people, equipments, and trees. Yes, it is crazy! If you don't wear a helmet you also risk scratching up and bruising your face on the ski gates, your skis, ski poles, and the ski hill itself. It can be a mess. So downhill ski racers wear a helmet to protect their noggin! So they don't become a dumb a like you ,,....,,,..,.
