How it works:
Skiers/riders judged in 5 categories:

      1. Line Choice
        Line is determined by the head judge ant that score is used by al the judges for further criteria.
      2. Control
        The first category judged following the line value determination.  It’s at the top of the list as it’s considered most important.  A fall is the ultimate loss of control and will most likely have an impact on the remaining 3 categories to be judged
      3. Fluidity
             Constant direction toward the goal
      4. Technique
        Style, technical ability, etc.   Taking air, doing tricks in the air is accounted for in this category.
      1.  Line score is based on the difficulty of the terrain skied as well as any obstacles (jumps, drops, etc..) that the skier/rider ma use to get to the bottom.
        1.      Keeping your body moving down the fall line of the mountain
        2.      Keeping continuity and pace with smooth transitions for obstacles and jumps.
        3.      Doesn’t have to be rapid fast ask this isn’t a time event
        1. Not only jumps or tricks are judged her though…. Proper skiing form and technique is huge here.
        2. All the stuff that coaches preach day in and day out…pole plants, ands staying forward, keeping the eyes and focus down the hill, proper angulation to help stay under control etc.
      1. Style and Energy
        1. The energy one ski with.
        2. The pace.
        3. Aggression mixed with imagination
          1. The path taken
          2. Jumps or drops taken
          3. Anything unique to a run

All judges will independently score categories 2-5 on a scale of 1-10.  The line score is also scaled 1-10

        • The line score will determine limits of scores in other categories.
          • Once the head judge determines the line score, the judges will not be able to score more than 3 points above the line value that’s chosen for each respective category.  Example – if a skier skis a lined valued at 5.2 then the highest score that skier can get in the other categories is 8.2 points in each category.
