The Skiers Cup sees teams from Europe and North America face off over two different events – Big Mountain and Backcountry Freestyle. In each event one skier from Team Europe faces off against an opponent from Team Americas. Each run is evaluated by a panel of judges and the winner takes a point for his team. Whichever team finishes the week with the most points wins.
Teams are picked by the captains and the eight pairings are then picked at random to face one another, with the captains fighting it out between themselves at the end. The match-ups for this year’s event are below.
