SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 13 (UPI) -- Skiers competing in the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, are warning of an unexpected hazard on the slopes -- sudden loss of pants.

The skiers said falling trousers have been a common sight among the slopestyle competitors this year, with Swedish skier Henrik Haraut's underwear making several appearances to onlookers Thursday, ABC News reported Thursday.

"He's always been the most baggy," Norwegian skier Per Kristian Hunder said of Haraut during an interview with Yahoo Sports. "It's just his style. And people love it."

U.S. skier Joss Christensen had a high-profile pants problem during the qualification round, but was able to keep his trousers in place for long enough to take the gold the men's slopestyle category Thursday.
