Watching Olympic Slalom

 Poster: A snowHead

Hi, I'm pretty clueless about snow sports & have never witnessed any live. My wife & I will however be going to S. Korea next month for the Olympics. My question is: Where is the best spot to watch slalom skiing ? It appears that the tickets on offer are in 2 spots, (1) somewhere on the hill & (2) at the bottom of the run. It seems to me that one would not see much actual downhill speed if viewing from the hill's base where the skiers run ends. I'm assuming binoculars are a must have item from this vantage point.
Any thoughts would be most appreciated. Thanks

@taiwandude, i like being on the hill near the finish line where i can also see a big screen. On the hill you feel part if it and get the swooshing and speed ...wear good insulated boots for standing on the snow and or take cardboard to stand on. You can usually see more if the run from the base but it feels remote to me. No need for binoculars IME as you watch it on the screen. Depending on the course the skiers might only come into view e.g. half way down

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@taiwandude, I’d definitely prefer the finish area tickets, it’ll be much more exciting. Is it the ladies or men’s race?

OK, Thanks holiday & moseyp.......much appreciated. The event lasts for 5 hours, so I'd imagine we'll move around between the 2 locales. It's the prelims early in week one, so doubt it will be sold out. Thanks for the tips about the cardboard & the no need for binocs. Glad to know there will be a big screen on the slope. We will be watching Ladies Giant Slalom. Cheers
