In the final phase, there are 3 rounds. In each round, a limited number of competitors qualify into to the next round. The last round will determine the podium.For ski cross, the quota for the maximum team size was increased, a new process for seeding in the qualification was defined and further integration of the WCSL (World Cup Starting List) was agreed, too.
