The Contest: A first of it’s kind organic slope style. It's organic cause you have to earn your turns, you are using the natural setting and you do your tricks on descent off of the natural features and pillows of Powder Keg at Whitewater.

This is a cool event for snowboarders, skiers and telemarkers who will go head to head and compete against each other. There is no segregation on how you get down. Switch 720, Misty 900s, and I bet the judges will even dig an old school daffy. Each participant will get 2 runs for a total opportunity to earn 150 points. Each run will be worth 75 points. Points will be awarded based on fluidity (max 25 per run), difficulty (max 25 per run), and landing (max 25 per run). The sickest, smoothest runs of the day will win! Yahoo! Grab a hot dog and some hot chocolate at the MC TENT and get up to the top again for a second run, and do it all over again. Stay tuned for more details.

Note: King & Queen participants will only be required to do at least 1 run each - remember there is an extra point available for stoke!

The Course/Venue: Whitewater’s POWDER KEG just off of the Summit Chair. Make your way to the Village Ski Hut tent!
