Speed: The time it takes the skier to complete is worth 25% of their final score.

[edit] R

RNS: Receives No Score.

Ruts: The deep area between moguls. The deepest section between the moguls.

[edit] T

Tip Cross: The ski tips cross, the competitor stays upright.

Triple Upright: A combination of three positions in one jump.

Trough: Ruts, or a deep path through the moguls.

Turns: Consistent changes in direction of travel to either side of the fall line.

Twister: Skis twist 90 degrees to one side of the body, hands and body twist to the opposite side.

[edit] W

With Position: The addition of a position to a jump, i.e. “360 with Position’

[edit] Y

Yard sale A wipeout fall in which skis, poles, hat, etc. end up strewn along the mountainside.
