The FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup is an annual freestyle skiing competition, arranged by the International Ski Federation (FIS) since 1980.[1][2] The events currently include Moguls, Aerials, Ski cross, Halfpipe and Slopestyle competitions. In the past there were two more disciplines, ski ballet and combined, which were cancelled in the end of the Nineteen Nineties.

Races are hosted primarily at ski resorts in North America, the Alps in Europe, with regular stops in Scandinavia, east Asia, but a few races have also been held in the Southern Hemisphere. World Cup competitions have been hosted in 19 different countries around the world: Australia, Austria, Canada, Croatia, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine and the United States.[3] (Note that all World Cup races hosted at ski resort in Ukraine was still part of Soviet Union respectively.)
