How are Wild Card athletes chosen?

There are two ways to recieve a wildcard to an event.

1. An athlete is given a direct invitation by the resort to compete in the event as a Wildcard. Athletes can apply for these Wildcards by emailing a freeride resume to the resort contact listed on the correlating event page. These Wildcards are typically used to help local athletes gain access to an event when the local athlete doesn't have a ranking.

2. New to the 2018-19 season, every 4* event has a 2* event preceeding it. If an athletes places 1st in her division in the preceeding 2*, she will be given a Wildcard spot in the 4* event the next day. The championship event is exempt from this rule.
