RulesEdit

The 16 best nations in the FIS Overall Nations Cup Ranking were eligible to participate in this event. Each team consisted of 4 to 6 skiers, but at least two female and two male skiers.

The format was a knock-out round competition with the pairings being made according to the Nations Cup Ranking. In each pairing, two female and two male skiers from each team raced a parallel slalom in a best-of-4 system. In the event of a tie, the faster cumulated time of the best male and the best female skier decides which team advanced to the next round.[1]
