Time scoring system
In the Giant Slalom | Slalom | Carving | Freeride | Mix Race disciplines points are scored through a certain time ranking system: the fastest (according to time keeping system) qualified run per day receives 1000 gross points, the slowest qualified run gets 100 gross points. The points of all other runs are scored in a linearly interpolated way.
Jump length scoring system
In the flight discipline points are scored through the ranking of jump lengths. There are 4 jump distance zones. For each zone reached you get the corresponding amount of gross points:
|Jump Length||Gross Points|
|0 - 3 metres||250|
|3 - 6 metres||500|
|6 - 9 metres||750|
Speed scoring system
In the speed discipline points are scored through a certain speed ranking system: the fastest (according to time keeping system) qualified run per day receives 1000 gross points, the slowest qualified run gets 100 gross points. The points of all other runs are scored in a linearly interpolated way.
BIG 3 Photo Rally scoring system
You can collect points depending on the number of photos and ski lifts you and all other participants have taken on one day. A tailor-made handicap (age, gender) is calculated for your personal score.
Winter Walking scoring system
In the winter walking discipline points are scored through 4 exactly defined time ranges and for each time zone you receive a certain amount of gross points:
The calculated gross value is converted into a net value by using a certain handicap scoring system. The handicap of a person strongly depends on the age and gender by calculating bonus points for athletes. These bonus points depend on how high the handicap is and on the exact ranking position. The handicap influences on the last place at a maximum and decreases towards the first places until it no longer has an effect on the number 1. Thus, the advantage of athletes with a high handicap in the first places is less to no longer available compared to those in the last places.
|Time Zone||Gross Points|
|0 - 5 minutes||1.000|
|5 - 7 minutes||750|
|7 - 9 minutes||500|

Technique and speed are required to conquer the race course successfully and to reach the top of the leaderboard. The Adrenalin Cup Giant Slalom is held on the BMWxDrive track at Giggijoch.
Very short distances between the single gates require quick changes of direction and small radii. Although the Adrenalin Cup Slalom race track is shorter than a World Cup course it's as steep as those for top athletes.
In addition to unlimited riding fun you should also focus on the best skiing technique and the race time. Gates and flags posted on the course must be passed correctly while speed, excellent ski control and a bit of skill promise a clear race.
Different Alpine disciplines and obstacles on a single race track: you can look forward to slalom poles, steep turns and a ski jump in the finish area. Are you fast, do you have the right technique and are you brave enough to conquer the course?
In squatting position - now only speed counts. Neither slalom poles nor gates but the highest possible speed. This competition is held on the BMWxDrive Speed track. Your speed is measured by a sensor and your performance immortalized by an action-filled speed photo.
With enough courage and willpower you can jump over the horizontal hill. The landing area is divided into four zones in terms of distance. The main aim is to jump as far as possible. Tip: At the end of the jumping platform you should push yourself away with your feet and thus maximize the jump distance - just like the pros.
Off the groomed slopes you will soon find out if you have your skis or board under control. Choose your favorite route between the panels positioned on the track and let them guide you to the finish line. Your time counts!
Enjoy the winter landscape and collect points at the same time. With a final short-distance sprint you have an excellent chance of advancing to the top of the leaderboard. The start of the route is marked by a photo point, your pass is scanned at a checkpoint at the very end.
BIG 3 Photo Rally
During the safari that takes you across the entire ski area (based on the famous BIG 3 Rally), automatic pictures are taken in the most beautiful vantage points. Reach all 4 photo points with 11 mountain lift rides in one day (order of your choice) and collect points.
