The Swiss-Ski Audi Ski Cross Tour, which was brought into being in 2009, forms the central element of national organisation in the ski cross discipline. The tour comprises European Cup, FIS and Open races – a total of ten race days over five weekends in various geographical regions of Switzerland. The FIS and European Cup races are reserved for licensed skiers, while the Open races also admit fun skiers. At the end of the season, the results are combined in an overall placings table and the Audi Ski Cross Tour winners are crowned in an exciting final.
