Welcome to our new beta design! Click here to go back to the old Newschoolers.
i like the teams format, it is a lot more inducive to having a good time and riding for fun.
you could break the comp down into disciplines, and have 2 (or 3 or whatever numbers allow)members of the team represent their team in the disciplines, making sure everybody is in at least one discipline
winners of each discipline could get swag, and the team that is the overall winner could get a prize too
to make it fun though, you could mix it up a bit with more than just slopestyle, big air, rail jam, halfpipe contests i dont know the facilities you have at your disposal, but this would be a sweet ass contest in my mind.
along with the slopestyle/rail jam/big air/pipe stuff you could add events like:
monoski race: where you get 2 monos with demo bindings on them and set up a course the teams race down
all around race: start a course out with a few tight slalom turns, ease that into a bump run, and then have there be a kicker with a rail after the landing or something to incorporate jibbing. time plus trick judging would decide the winner
sled sprint race: innertube sled race down a run with the opposing teams lined up to pelt the opponent with snowballs to throw them off the course
synchro big air: where two skiers go off a wide jump at the same time and its judged like synchro diving in the olympics
stuff like that would break up the typical contest mode, make things fun, and im sure the people in the contest would get competitive about it.
This could be the very best comp idea I have ever heard. There are a few things you would want to work out there, but overall, so sick!
You could also try an Orage Masters approach to this comp. You would have a team captain (pro) with a team of 6-7 skiers that would face off against another team in the Masters format. In order to keep the teams as close skill-wize as possible, you could hold an open slopstyle (excluding the pros) the day before to determine how the teams should be made. The first day (open slopestyle) could also have awards/prizes like a normal slopestyle, and day two would be organized more like the Masters.
this idea is kinda directed towards the better skiers because i feel that boulder itself has quite a few legit skiers as well as all the surrounding mountains. we can get a pretty legit comp going
boulder should build 1-2 ideal park jumps taking up all of boulder park.
It should be 1vs1 bracket just like JOI used to be. 1 jumps style. 1 jump technicality
if boulder put time in the the jumps.
shit could get way outa control.
1,2,3 cash prizes
then crazy after party
