The Snowboard FIS World Cup
The LG Snowboard FIS World Cup is a worldwide contest series which features five different snowboard disciplines:
- big air
- snowboard cross
- parallel slalom
- parallel giant slalom
In each discipline, the best rider will be crowned at the end of the season winning the small Crystal Globe.
In addition to the discipline titles, there is also an Overall World Cup titles for the best freestyle snowboarder (halfpipe, big air and slopestyle) as well as race boarder (pgs and psl)
To find out, who will bring home the big Crystal Globe the system will work like this:
The points from a rider's best World Cup Freestyle contests (halfpipe, slopestyle and big air) or parallel races (pgs and psl) will be added together to determine the overall champion in the freestyle disciplines. A maximum of 6 events are taken into account regardless the event where the results are achieved.
In contrary to both Snowboarding Overall World Cup titles, the system to verify the winner of the discipline World Cups remains the same:
The rider who collects the highest sum of points in one discipline during the season - deducting throwaways if applicable - wins the World Cup.
Possible throwaways per competitions:
- 1 - 6 competitions: no throwaway
- 7 - 12 competitions: 1 throwaway
- 13 - 18 competitions: 2 throwaways
