Format & Rules

Here’s your chance to show off your dream line chock-full of the best tricks you can link together. Pay attention, this is your go-to page for competition format and rules. Read up and best of luck.

After the video submission window has closed, the competition begins with a round of public voting. The top 20 videos from each category with the most votes will move into finals. If there was a standout performance that didn’t get a ton of votes, judges have a Wild Card choice for each voting round (one per category).

During Finals, judges will analyze the entries similar to a competition run and assign an overall impression score of 1-100. PPOS judges will evaluate athletes on progression, amplitude, variety, execution, and trick difficulty. The final score will determine overall winners.

Things to know:

  • There are men’s and women’s divisions for each discipline. Open and Junior (under 15) divisions are available for each discipline. Athletes must chose one division for each discipline.
  • Helmets ARE RECOMMENDED for all athletes.
  • Videos cannot exceed 180 seconds
  • Videos may be edited by including video clips of complete tricks stitched together to form an athlete’s dream run. Create the illusion of your best continuous big mountain line.
  • Each trick video-clip must include the start, execution and landing of the maneuver.
  • In between each trick video-clip, athletes must maintain the same riding direction (switch or forward).
  • Athletes must identify themselves at the beginning of the edit mentioning their name and unique ID. This may be noted as audio or as a graphic.
  • Submission must include the bumper graphics available for download on peak2park.com. click HERE for video intro and outro.
  • Music can only be used if it has been licensed and downloaded from peak2park.com. For music click HERE.
  • Footage from other competitions will not be accepted. Competition training footage is satisfactory.
