Teams of four compete based on the smallest difference between two runs on a dual slalom style race course. The team winner is chosen based on overall team consistency over the four-night series. There are nightly awards for fastest and most consistent.

  • 4 x Friday night lift tickets valid 4:00pm to 9:00pm
  • 4 x organized two-run dual races
