You weave in and out of a series of 5 feet tall gates inside the ground along a defined course. If you skip a gate you DNF "did not finish". The faster you complete the course the better. It is important to hit the gates every time you go for the gate...the correct gear will prevent you from getting hurt. If you find yourself not hitting the gate make your turns closer to the gate then once they are close enough to hit them, put you pole guard (hand) in-front of yourself to push the gate away. This is a good strategy but not needed.
You also have Giant Slalom, Super G (Super Giant Slalom) and Downhill. These are faster variations of the traditional slalom. The course is longer and the flags are positioned further apart. This makes the course faster as you need to make less of a sharp curve to reach the next flag. Downhill being the fastest.
In case you are talking about waterskiing, slalom is the same as in snow but with boueys floating on the water.
they go in between gates and they if they miss one there is a penalty
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.
1) Phil Mahre - downhill, slalom, giant slalom - won silver in slalom, the only medal won by the U.S. ski team, men or women, at the 1980 Games.2) Pete Patterson - downhill, slalom, giant slalom3) Andy Mill - downhill4) Karl Anderson - downhill5) Steve Mahre - slalom, giant slalom6) Cary Adgate - giant slalom7) Bill Taylor - slalom
to slalom water ski, the ski-er must pass through entry gatesof a slalom course and then round six bouys and exit via another gates the boat travels at a set speed if the ski-er makes a pass the rope is then shortend at every pass until the ski-er falls.who ever makes the most bouys on the shortest rope wins
1) Heidi Preuss - downhill, giant slalom2) Cindy Nelson - downhill, giant slalom, slalom3) Holly Flanders - downhill4) Christin Cooper - giant slalom, slalom5) Tamara McKinney - giant slalom, slalom6) Abbi Fisher - slalomThe U.S. women's alpine ski team won no medals at the 1980 Winter Games. The best finish was a 4th place by Heidi Preuss in downhill.
Nobody has answered this because "slalom curve" isn't terminology that really matches anything exactly; at least in alpine skiing. If this is an alpine question, are you referring to ski equipment, the ski turn, the track/path in the snow, or something involving slalom racing? The basic answer would be "turn". previous answer: ESS
If you are a serious downhill ski racer then you know that you need to invest in at least two pair of skis. One pair of skis is for slalom racing while the other pair of skis is for giant slalom racing. Slalom skis tend to be shorter in length and narrower because you need to move your skis quickly. In slalom the gates are fairly close together and you need to be able to maneuver around them with lightning speed. Shorter skis allow quick movement and helps prevent catching your tip on a gate. Giant slalom skis tend to be longer and wider because you have a greater distance between gates. You want as much flat surface area of the bottom of your ski to be in contact with the snow as possible to increase your speed. The size you choose for your slalom and giant slalom skis depends on your height, preference, and skiing ability. Consult with a ski professional to help you out.
In Alpine skiing there are 4 main types of ski racing, slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom and downhill. In the events you must ski around "gates" without missing a gate or you will get disqualified. You race against people your age and gender and whoever make it down the course the fastest wins! In cross-country skiing there are two main types, free (skate) and classic style. You ski a prepared track typically between 2 and 50 kilometers long.
Alpine There are 4 main types of alpine ski racing: slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom and downhill. In the events you must ski around "gates" without missing a gate or you will get disqualified. You race against people in your age and gender and whoever make it down the course the fastest wins! Cross-country Is divided into classic and free (skate) categories or a combination of them. You ski a track which is a mix of uphill, downhill and flat parts ranging typically from a few to 50 kilometers. And as for alpine skiing, fastest to complete the course wins.

Lindsey Vonn, the Olympic alpine skier, won the slalom at the Trofeo Topolino when she was 14 years old. The Trofeo Topolino is an Italian ski competition for juniors (ages 11-14) composed of slalom, giant slalom, and "combi" (combination slalom and downhill run) races. Vonn remains the only American to win at the Trofeo Topolino; she has gone on to win two gold and two silver Olympic medals and two gold and two silver World Ski Championships.
First you need to know that downhill skiing is also referred to as Alpine Skiing. Second you need to decide if you are a "serious" ski racer or a "recreational" ski racer. Don't know which category you fit into? Check out their descriptions below. Serious ski racers are generally Junior ski racers in elementary through college age. Serious ski racers go to ski practice daily and have ski races every week. They may also be on a high school ski team if it is available in their area. These ski racers invest in ski equipment including two to three pairs of skis, helmet, Giant Slalom Suit, ski poles with wrist guards, shin guards, and other ski racing gear and equipment. Ski racing equipment can be very expensive, but a serious ski racer skis so often that it is worth it. Serious ski racers are competitive and may strive to become a professional ski racer one day. Recreational ski racers are those skiers that ski once in awhile or just for fun a couple times a month or week. Recreational skiers may have their own equipment, but don't usually have a giant slalom suit and/or protective equipment. Serious ski racers will want to check out the United States Ski Association website at http://www.ussa.org/PublishingFolder/42.htm. They having junior Alpine racing programs. These racing programs hold races at local ski areas every Saturday and Sunday. Typically you will have slalom races on Saturday and Giant Slalom races on Sunday. You take a 2 run race in the morning and another 2 run race in the afternoon. Recreational skiers will have fun in a Nastar race. Nastar races are usually set up as Giant Slalom and the courses are very easy to navigate. Check for a Nastar race at your local ski area.
Downhill (Alpine) ski races are usually day long event. Typically you will have either slalom or giant slalom all day long. You will need to different skis and equipment for each length. Let's say it's a day of slalom racing. Slalom racing is when the gates are closer together. Ski racers want to have the fastest time so they try to ski as straight a line down the ski slope as they possible can. This means that they will hit the gates with their shins. The gates are "breakaway" so they will hit the ground and bounce back up. (You drill a hole into the snow and screw the gates in to begin with.) Here is a typical schedule: 7:30-8am Arrive at the ski slope8-9am: Warmup runs - practice runs through a "practice" slalom course9-9:30am: Slalom course inspection. You are not allowed to ski through the "race" course. You have to slide down the hill with your skis horizontal to the hill. It's called "slipping the course". There are separate courses for each run.9:30-12: Take your first and second run. Races consists of 2 timed runs through the course. Your two times are added together for your total race time. The fastest time wins. 12-1pm: Lunch1-1:30: Slalom course inspection1:30-4pm: Second slalom race consisting of 2 runs Sound confusing? It's really not once you get used to it. There are various other rules you need to follow. Plus you have to wear a number called your "bib". The order in which you ski varies as well. The second run order is based on your first run time...I'll stop with the rules. Attend a race to find out more! Burton or Spider
