Competition terms.


Participants who register on have the chance to win prizes. To do so, they must collect the points that can be obtained through the BMW xDrive Cup offers in BMW Mountains’ partner ski areas as well as online on the BMW Mountains website. In the BMW xDrive Cup Competition, participants are awarded points e.g. for the altitude distance driven in a ski area, for taking photos at the BMW xDrive Cup photopoints, or for driving on a skimovie facility. The points obtained are credited to their BMW Mountains profile by adding the ski pass of the relevant skiing day to their profile. By completing various tasks on, such as sharing media on social media, answering quiz questions correctly and various other possibilities, participants can collect additional points, which are then also credited to them on their BMW Mountains profile.

By accumulating points, participants can move up to the next higher level:
Level 1: 0 – 499 points
Level 2: 500 – 999 points
Level 3: 1000 – 1999 points
Level 4: 2000 – 4999 points
Level 5: From 5000 points

By collecting points and through the luck of a draw, participants have the chance to win various prizes.
Monthly prizes: A prize is drawn monthly on each of the five levels, regardless of the number of points.
Main prize: At the end of the season, the Main Prize is drawn among all participants on Level 4 and higher.
Seasonal prize: The participant with the highest number of points accumulated in the course of the season wins a Seasonal Prize.

Season start.

The start of the season for the BMW xDrive Cup is 01.12.2018, while the closing date for participation is 30.04.2019. Participation is automatic on successful registration on the website. Through registration, a login area is provided for the participants where all points collected during the season are stored. We may not be held responsible for any delayed or lost registration.


Every month during the season, a monthly prize is drawn for each level. It includes a variety of items for the relevant monthly prize draws by BMW cooperation partners. The main prize, a BMW X1, will be drawn from among all the participants with at least 2000 points (across all months and ski resorts). The fees for initial registration, insurance and vehicle road tax as well as the costs for maintenance and operation of the vehicle, along with all other taxes and costs arising in connection with use of it, must be borne by the winner from the time of acquiring ownership of the vehicle. On handover of the vehicle to the winner, the latter must furnish appropriate documentary proof that the necessary insurance cover for it has been obtained. The season prize, a two-day trip with one overnight stay at the Hotel Ermitage (room as per availability) in Gstaad and one guided heli-skiing tour will be awarded to the participant who achieves the highest number of points for the duration of the 2018/2019 winter season. The heli-skiing tour’s event organiser, Skischule Gstaad, reserves the right to not conduct the heli-skiing event due to meteorological circumstances or as a result of a lack of snowfall.


The winners of the monthly prizes and the main prize are determined by drawing lots. The draw for the monthly prizes is held on the 10th of each month, the draw for the BMW X1 on 15.05.2019. The award of the seasonal prize is decided not by a draw but by the greatest number of points collected during the period from 01.12.2018 to 30.04.2019. If several persons have the same highest number of points, the ultimate winner is determined by drawing lots between them.
Winners are notified by email. If a winner does not respond within 14 days from notification, the prize will be forfeited. The announcement of the winners is without guarantee. Recourse to the courts of law is barred. A cash pay-out for or an exchange of the prizes is not possible. Prize claims are not transferable to other persons.
