1) the April 25th, 2010 Olympic medal ceremony when Canada won silver in the men's freestyle skiing
The 2010 Winter Olympics Games took place in Canada's Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains. The 3
events that happened in those mountains were freestyle skiing, snowboarding and Nordic skiing.
Freestyle skiing involves a variety of tricks where skiers take huge steps and perform aerial maneuvers,
frequently at high altitudes. Snowboarding is like skiing only done on snow. Nordic skiing involves using
skis to get around a course of tracks that are much longer than most traditional cross-country ski trails.
These events all have similarities with each other except for one key difference: absolute speed. If a
skier uses tricks that require speed, they will be performing them at high speeds while doing these
tricks. On the other hand if they were just simple cross country skiers their speed would not be as great
as their tricks
Whistler Blackcomb is known for its skiing and now its has a super pipe and chairlifts on top of that, it's
even more popular than before.
