Riders (competitors) - ride around the track and perform so-called tricks (stunts) on it. This is a freestyle or freestyle competition - riders can do whatever they come up with, but they must also be able to do it. Therefore, it's not only about creativity, but also about skill, craftsmanship. Therefore, it's safe to say that they are also the artists of this festival.


You can say a little about the naming of tricks (as there will be space for it) - frontside, backside, cab (switch frontside), backside, frontflip, backflip, rodeo, underflip, regular, goofy, left/right skiing, cork.... About the fact that a well-executed trick should have a rake, that is, grabbing the board or ski, etc.


Competitors go down the track for a certain time according to the start list : 40 min qualification, 30 min finals. As time runs out, we finish a given run - so that everyone has the same number of runs on the track.

Judges evaluate the so-called "overall impression" and take into account such criteria as:

  • Technical difficulty of the tricks
  • Execution (landing, grabs, smoothness of rotation)
  • Height and distance of the jump
  • Variety of tricks - it is good for the competitor to do 2 different tricks
  • Progression, creativity, doing unorthodox tricks


The transformation of the ski hill into a freestyle track was taken care of by the Vodasodova team, which is known for its exceptional precision to detail and unique international projects like X-Games and Air&Style.

In 2024, the SnowFest Games will fall under the FIS rank, allowing Riders to collect FIS ranking points.
