Each ski team is comprised of three racers who ski independently on the giant slalom for the fastest time in pursuit of the Corporate Cup Trophy, a traveling award that resides yearly with the company that wins the title. Individuals may compete without a team or attend the fun day and not compete.
During an afternoon flight that includes 100 targets, shooters participate in teams of five on Seven Springs Sporting Clay course, considered one of the best sporting clay facilities in the country. The top team wins the Sporting Clays Trophy, also a traveling award that resides with the winning team for one year.
