Live Bracket Draw

Friday March 6th at High Rollers from 7:00pm to 9:00pm 

Join us for the live draw to see who your opponent will be and stay for a chance to win back your entry fee and lift ticket to the contest.

Riders will be randomly placed into a bracket of up to 64 boarders. The two riders drawn against each other will initially play rock-paper-scissors to find out who will pick the first ‘set trick; for our park Feature. Basically, one rider will set the trick, and the other will need to follow by landing the same trick. If the rider is un-able to repeat a set trick, they will be given a letter. If a rider fails to set a trick, it will be the other riders opportunity to set the next trick. First rider with 4 letters (S.N.O.W) is eliminated, with the winning rider moving to the next round.
