# Slope

### From FIS Freestyle wiki

** Slope** is used to describe the steepness,

**incline**, gradient, or

**grade**of a straight line. A higher slope value indicates a steeper incline. The slope is defined as the ratio of the "rise" divided by the "run" between two points on a line, or in other words, the ratio of the

**altitude**change to the

**horizontal**distance between any two points on the line. It is also always the same thing as how many rises in one run.
