Game of GNAR Description:
G.N.A.R, short for 'Gaffney’s Numerical Assessment of Radness' — is a point-based system created by Robb Graffney & Shane McConkey at Squaw Valley Resort. According to Powder Magazine the "goal in the game is to get as many points as possible by skiing the most radical line" (Stifter, 2010). Putting our own righteous tweak on things we present to you the game of G.N.A.R Righteous Edition:
How It Works:
G.N.A.R. points are awarded based on how discomfortable the situation is and how gnarly the run. Following that formula, stomping a big cliff air might get you 500 points — but skiing that same line naked after shouting at the top of your lungs that you were ‘about to rip the s--t out of it!' would earn you over double the points. G.N.A.R. points are also won or lost for random acts as defined in the rulebook: Day ending injury costs you 1,000 points, while drinking beer in the park gets you 350 points. Gnarlier and funnier the points get higher and higher.
Is This Do-able in a Day?
The game sees you earn points for riding particularly rad lines or achieving particularly hilarious tasks, and lose points for doing anything uncharacteristically lame.
Point winning scenarios MUST be witnessed by another player or otherwise caught on camera ( Ideally both )
The game begins the moment you physically receive the checklist that morning.
So not only can you earn points (duh) but you can also lose them.
