The FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup is an annual freestyle skiing competition arranged by the International Ski Federation since 1980.[1][2] Currently six disciplines are included in world cup: moguls, aerials, ski cross, halfpipe, slopestyle and big air. In the 1980s and 1990s there were also ski ballet and combined, which no longer exist.

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.)
