Freeride Judging

Big Mountain Events are based on the following
  • Line: difficulty/creativity of line
  • Technique: quality of linked turns, not any particular “style, but how the turns work with the terrain
  • Control: loss of control will result in reduction of points
  • Fluidity: how well the rider moves consistently, with no pauses, down the hill
  • Overall Impression
