About Ski Cross
Ski cross is an event where four athletes race on one course simultaneously. Ski cross courses have natural and artificial features consisting of high-speed jumps, rollers, and bank turns.
This event is only suited to intermediate/advanced athletes comfortable with medium jumps, little drops, and skiing in a high-intensity environment.
U12 athletes can only participate in ONE event. They must choose between the AASA U12 Provincial SX or the NGSL North Zone SX. Athletes are not permitted to attend both events.
