How fast would the male downhill skiers be against the women?
It depends on the competition that you are doing. If it just a local competition they don't care as much if you have lyrics to your music or not. As you get to the higher level competitions they don't like to have lyrics. Usually on the entrance forms for a competition under the requirements it will say. It will say the length of the program and whether they can have lyrics or not.

It can be either way, it doesn't really matter. Though if you are competing USFS then I would suggest instrumental, but lyrics would be find too. ISI doesn't matter at all.
Whats the best resort mountain in Colorado ?
