In halfpipe, athletes perform a variety of big tricks over a long stretch of curved ramp. According to NBC Olympics, the scoring system is pretty straightforward. A panel of six judges evaluate each run, scoring the run on a scale from 1 to 100. The highest and lowest scores are dropped, and the remaining four are averaged for each run. However, there aren't rigid requirements for how each run will be scored, which means athletes are typically judged relative to how others have performed that day. That being said, the same criteria — amplitude, difficulty, variety, execution, and progression — are taken into consideration when evaluating a run.
