- The winner is the person or team that makes the most ascents within twenty-four hours.
- It starts at 14.00 (Saturday) and ends at 14.00 (Sunday).
- The ski pass and the vest work as a baton, and are passed from one team member to the next. The vest number must be clearly visible.
- Helmets are mandatory.
- More than one team series participant may ski or snowboard at the same time, but only one of the ski passes is counted toward the final total.
- Changing equipment during the competition is permitted.
- The start is done "Le Mans" style, i.e. there is a running start and participants pick up equipment from its own line before going to the lift. Only one member of each team takes part in the start.
- The last ascent must be registered before 14:00 on Sunday, to be counted.
- Team exchanges of ski passes and vests take place at the indicated "pit stop".
- If a participant stops the gondola by, for example, blocking the door with equipment, the participant or team loses that ascent.
- Downhill racing is prohibited. Turns must be clearly visible.
- After one warning, downhill racing costs the participant or team that ascent.
- Taking shortcuts costs the participant or team that ascent.
- If weather conditions require the closing of the Gondola, the competition will take place using another lift, if possible.
- Leaving the anchor lift before the exit point costs the participant or team two ascents.
- Participants must have a valid ski pass during the competition. If team members take turns, only one pass is needed.
- Participants must provide their own insurance coverage.
