Why is it incorrect to say 'kjører du ski slalåm'?

Would this be used for sports other than skiing? Kjører is locked in my head as "drive" now, so my first thought on this was slalom car-racing (autocross).

I'm guessing this is generally a phrase people slaloming would use, but in the right context it could probably be said by people zigzagging in a vehicle.

This makes me think of how many snowboarders and skiers refer to their sport as "riding". It's very contextual.

Jeg ville brukt frasen "Står du slalom".

Kjører only mentions driving in the dictionary here. It needs to be added if it's used this commonly. In all my lessons, this meaning has only just now (after one other sentence a few seconds ago) shown up and is throwing me off!
