giant rails, super booters, and more fun than you can shake a stick at. Because, in the end, that is what skiing is really about.

This event is based on style and creativity, so leave the hucking at home and dial those tricks in. Points are awarded for style, uniqueness, run creativity, and difficulty. Pros will need to bring their entire bag of
tricks because each run has to be completely different from the previous one.

I guess you were mainly wondering what the format was soo...4 rails across the top. Long down rail, big flat down rail, huge down flat down, and a small flat rail. End of the course will have a giant booter and a little booter, there might be some small tech thing to finish off the course as well. Basically a condensed slopestyle, or a backwards version of Empire Shakedown. 3 qualifying runs, drop when you want. Then The finals. Number of people through depends on number in each category.
