Lil' Big Mountain

10:00am - Lil' Big Mountain Inspection Starts Head First Trail (off Gondola 1)

11:00am –Lil' Big Mountain Start Head First Trail (off Gondola 1)

The event will take place on "Head First" trail under the gondola next to Pepi's Face. The athletes will choose a "line" down the trail that they think will impress judges. Part of the score will be to see who is creative with their "line" choice. Head first is a steeper run with variable terrain that includes bumps and a few rocks to jump off. The athletes will also be scored on their technique, control, fluidity, and energy/style. The idea is to see who can ski the best down this run while being scored on those 5 criteria’s. For example: If an athlete shows good turning, pole planting, control of upper body, and gets creative with natural features by jumping off bumps or rocks, they will see positive scoring from judges
