An overview of the competitions

The sled competition for associations

The associations compete against each other for the title of the best sled. The prettiest and the fastest sled wins. Plus points for good vibes. For the sled ride to be approved, at least one (1) person must be in the sled during the entire ride.

Sledding competition for other students

Even this year students have the opportunity to participate without being in a student association. So now you and your group of friends have the opportunity to participate in this fast-paced event. You are competing for the same title as the associations, i.e. the best sled. The same rules apply, except that the competition takes place between students. There is a limited number of places, first come, first served.

Registration takes place via Lyyti [link]. The last day of registration for the link is 9 February at 11.59 p.m.

Evening party

The evening ends with an award ceremony at Fontana. Tickets for the afterparty at Fontana will come out at the end of next week (w. 6).

ATTENTION! Those who plan to participate in the sledding competition are encouraged to GET YOUR OWN ACCIDENT INSURANCE! We also ask you to note that the use of alcohol may affect the insurance. Please also note that consumption of alcohol in a public place is prohibited.

Contact SSHV, Novium or ÅAS if you have questions!

See you on the slopes!
