Olympic Cookie Countdown - Six Days Left!

Just six days left until the start of the 2014 Winter Olympics!  Today's cookie celebrates moguls.  Mogul skiing is a type of freestyle skiing where skiers display tricks, jumps and turning abilities on a mogul slope.  The moguls (a series of bumps on a trail) are either formed naturally or are constructed.  Skiers absorb the impact of the bumps by bending at the knees and hips.  In a good run, shoulders should remain parallel to the finish line, turns should be quick and short and skis should not leave the snow surface.

Moguls and all the other freestyle skiing events will take place at the Rosa Khutor Extreme Park near Krasnaya Polyana, Russia.  The events are scheduled for February 6, 8 and 10th.  I will be watching!
