WBC Open Invitational Tournament Rules & Information

The WBC Open Invitational is a Head-to-Head fast paced 3-event high stakes tournament. There will be three categories of competition; Overall, Tricks, Jump, and Slalom. This tournament will have a total cash payout of $20,500. The Breakdown of this sum is as follows:

Overall

–   1st –   $5,000

–     2nd –  $2,500

–     3rd –  $1,000

Single Events

–     1st –   $2,500

–     2nd –  $1,000

–     3rd –   $500

The way that the tournament will be run is under a very different format than any tournament before it. The event will start with 2 elimination rounds of both tricks and slalom. All competitors will be included in both elimination rounds. Jumping will include only 1 elimination round, consisting of 4 jumps per skier. Each skier’s best score out of either elimination round becomes his or her seed score for the rest of the tournament. The top 8 seeded skiers in each event will move on to the head-to-head format.

After elimination, head-to-head begins. From this point on, all jump rounds will only consist of 2 jumps per skier. The seed scores determine the pairings for each round (i.e. #1 vs. #8; #2 vs. #7 etc.). The higher seeded skier of each pair will receive the option of choosing to ski before or after his or her competitor. The winners move on to the next round and the losers are immediately eliminated from that event.

Once the final 4 skiers emerge, the seed scores once again base the pairings for the second round. The winners proceed to the third and final round in a head-to-head battle for first and second place. The skier with the higher second round score of the two losers will take third place.

The Overall category winners will be determined by the skiers’ best score in each event throughout the entire tournament, including the elimination rounds.

Judging will follow the same rules as the standard 3-event competition; however, this tournament will feature Instant Scoring. Each score will be announced and recorded before the next skier is pulled.
