Teams consist of three or more competitors, which can be made up of any combination of skiers and/or snowboarders, males and females.
Teams will be allocated points based on their lowest three individual aggregate times.
Competitors who are disqualified or do not finish their first run will still be welcome to have their second run, though times will not count for their team. Racing will occur in the following age categories;-

By way of history: Julian Storey had been skiing since his University days, mainly at Mt Buller but also many places around the world. He died on the Bull Run from a heart attack in 1990. He was in his forties and his ashes have been laid to rest at Buller.
His mother, Lady Madeline Robinson formally of South Africa and London, made this memorial trophy available so that future generations of forty year old skiers can gain pleasure competing for the cup. Sir Albert and Lady Robinson, visited Australia in February 2003. They kindly invited all the Trophy winners and their partners to join them for dinner at the Alexander Club where the evening was certainly enjoyed by all.
