THE RACE

What sets Ski Cross apart from other sports, including alpine skiing, is the fact that skiers race head to head down the course.

Ski cross courses have both naturally occurring terrain and artificial features including jumps, rollers and high-banked turns.

The unique combination of technically-challenging terrain and head to head racing makes Ski Cross a thrilling spectator sport.

A timed (single skier) qualification round seeds skiers into the knock-out ‘final heats’. Each heat consists of four racers going head to head, with the aim of finishing first. The top 2 in each heat advance to the next round until just 4 skiers remain. The final heat is a single run where four skiers race to be the first across the finish line for the win.

Having already established itself as a hugely popular action-packed and adrenaline-fueled TV sport, Ski Cross made its Olympic debut as a medal sport at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver-Whistler.

Canada’s Ashleigh McIvor won a historic Gold medal in the first ever Olympic women’s Ski Cross race on Cypress Mountain. Since that time the Canadian Team has been one of the best in the world with multiple World Cup, World Championship and Olympic medals to their credit.

At the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Canada’s Brady Leman won men’s Gold, while Kelsey Serwa and Brittany Phelan won Gold and Silver respectively in the women’s competition.

Canada’s Olympic medalists will compete at the 2019 Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup at Blue Mountain, the final race before the FIS World Championships are held in Utah just one week later.

In addition to great racing the World Cup Celebration Festival in the Village at Blue Mountain will feature entertainment and activities for the whole family to enjoy.
