How it works

  • There are 6 ski and 6 snowboard teams in CSS, each competing in 5 rounds. The league starts in May and ends in September.

 

  • In each round, the teams have a 3-4 week match window to film. The team coach/manager will field a team of 4 skiers or snowboarders which must include one female and one young gun (who is born in 2003 or later) as well as two others.

 

  • In every round, each snowboarder or skier will have to complete a kicker trick, rail trick and an EX trick. The EX trick will be judged solely upon execution with consideration of creativity not technical difficulty.

 

  • Crews should have more than 4 team members, however only the best footage of four skiers / snowboarders footage within the above age and gender parameters is submitted.

 

  • Individual unedited clips of the tricks must be uploaded to the designated Dropbox folder by the end of each filming window.

 

  • The clips from each team member are then viewed and scored by the 4 ski judges or 4 snowboard judges considering difficulty, execution, amplitude, and landing. (For more information on judging please look here)

 

  • The footage is then edited by the CSS team. Video edits and match results will then be live on the CSS website and shared on social media.

 

  • After all 5 rounds have taken place the winning team will be crowned the winners of CSS and awarded prize money that is kindly donated by our sponsors: The Snowboard Asylum, Ellis Brigham and Delancey.
