What Does a Head2Head Contest Entail?
Teams of 4 skiers train 2 compulsory, predetermined forms. During the competition, a team of 4 people will ski against another team of 4 people. It will be determined at the start which of the two predetermined forms will be skied and which team will start on the left or right side of the track. Both teams ski side by side at the same time.
Synchronous skiing is a jury sport. At the bottom of the slope, there will be a jury who decides which team has performed the form best. The winner of the run is indicated by means of a hand sign. The teams then continue to participate in the competition according to the Knock-Out system. The winner may advance to the next round and the loser may "resit" in a so-called lucky-loser round. Through this Knock-Out system, a winner will ultimately be designated. The Knock-Out system is set up in such a way that each team will be able to ski at least two runs.
