What is Snowboardcross & Skicross?

Both Snowboardcross (SBX) and Skicross (SX) are events that involve multiple athletes simultaneously racing down a hill at the same time using speed and skill to make it over cambered turns, various types of jumps, berms, rollers, drops and steep and flat sections designed to challenge the riders' and skiers’ ability to stay in control while maintaining maximum speed.

Both competitions will take place on the same course at Solitude Mountain Resort in 2019 with one obvious difference: Snowboardcross is with riders; Skicross is with skiers. The race is set up into qualifying rounds, with the top two athletes continuing onto the finals. Traditionally, Snowboardcross includes qualifying rounds of four or six racers at a time; Skicross limits qualifying rounds to four racers.
