Spanish term or phrase:Prueba creación del slalom
one item in a list of services one can purchase at a ski area. My best guess at this time is a qualifying/qualification test that one has to pass in order to be able to enter a slalom race.
I think this may literally means creating the slalom course (i.e. how to place the gates so they are within regulations, etc.). I am working on this project also, and this question went ot the client. The literal meaning was our best guess. It seems also to be the only thing that adds up. Cheers :)
Hi, I am a skier and snowboarder and I live in Spain, I have never heard this term, I have heard Prueba slalom, but not creacion slalom. It does not make much sense, how can you "create" a slalom?, do they mean you can grab a bunch of poles and make your own slalom course?; do they mean you are trying an original course?; are you picking the part of the mountain they will use? Perhaps you should request clarification.

original slalom race
Explanation: Since this is a package being sold, I don't think it is a qualifying heat. And the word "creación" gives the idea it is something "original."
