Skiing's one and only Anti-Comp has returned With its break all rules attitude, costume-clad competitors, on hill shenanigans and 7 year history of being the "funnest" comp on the planet... we’re stoked that you'll be joining us for the Orage Masters 8 at Sun Valley, Idaho April 4th-6th 2013.
With film crews competing head to head, this years' roster of teams includes: Level 1 Productions, 4bi9, Stept Productions, Traveling Circus, Inspired Media, Toy Soldier Productions, the Kids, and the “Elite Eight”.
The Orage Masters is a unique and potentially controversial event based on its rider-inspired, rider-judged format. As teams battle it out head to head in the first two heats, the 6 non-competing teams and a crew of guest judges will judge those on course by throwing up scores ranging from 0-10, 10 being the best possible score. When the dust finally settles, each competing team will be scored from a potential max score of 70 points and will either ride into the next round, or be banished back to their crib.
After the remaining two teams face off in the finals, the 6 eliminated teams will each hold a name card of the team they feel is the most deserving. In the case of a tie, each team will be asked to send their best athlete to challenge their tied rival in a one-run tie-breaking ski-off… an all-out battle to the death!

- Sun Valley Set Up -
The Masters course will once again be a super creative jungle gym of snow piles created by Sun Valley’s own Brian Callahan and sculpted to perfection by Mike “Mad Skillz” Gerstner. Lines galore, and a giant Crib structure to party (and judge) in. What else could you ask for?
This being the 8th edition of the Orage Masters, the event will take place on a course that represents the true essence of the event... a creative, street influenced, jib-style course encompassing athlete created jibs, airs, and crowd-facing features for crews to get down on... all of which will be set to the beats of the ski-world famous DJ Largechild.
As always, each team will be stationed in their very own private Team Crib, of they will deck out according to their teams' theme. Expect to see teams getting into the spirit of the event: team costumes, themes, and pre-planned shenanigans not only add to the allure of the event, but so too play a part in how they are scored by their peer judges.
