The evaluation takes place in two categories - the audience's sympathy - the first three places and the jury's evaluation - the first three places.
The "Big Splash" is a descent on skis or a Snowboard along the Red track, which ends with crossing a puddle at the foot of the mountain. The participant's task is to successfully cross the puddle. Both the show and the size of the splash are evaluated. Participants are invited to introduce their own elements of the show, both in performance and in clothing and appearance.
