Because every competition day has been cancelled due to weather, and with one day left to compete, the Sunday finals day will be run in a DUAL COMP format. 12-14 and 15-18 athletes will start and run at the same time and in parallel in the lookers left Cirque venue with 12-14 athletes running on lookers left and 15-18 starting up the hill, lookers right.
We're doubling the judging staff and will deploy two full expert judging teams to judge each age group as they run in parallel. Although there is precedence for this format at the Freeride World Tour level, this is a first for the Junior tour! Note that the closures on this map are subject to change in the morning.
