Why are some pro tour stops worth more points?

The events have to establish themselves and then have $ amounts across the divisions to establish themselves as events the athletes want to be in.

Importantly you cannot just prize open men and get your event classified higher you need to provide prize money into the various divisions.

@Luzz may be traveling and have time to elaborate but this is very cool because its not like you can sponsor an open men's slalom event and call it a top tier event.

In my opinion, a very important aspect of this design is to incentivize toward building a bigger and better Pro Tour as the future unfolds. I think it is more than acceptable if we crown some "surprising" series champions along the way, if indeed this structure achieves the broader goal of a better future.

(Not saying anyone is disagreeing with that. Just emphasizing it.)

Thank you all for the interest and clarifications in the thread.

@BraceMaker by Waterski Pro Tour Framework, stars are attributed to disciplines (e.g., Men's Jump, Women Tricks, etc) that have at least $12k. For every $3k increment, another star is attributed. Although it is not mandatory to have both Women and Men, we have an incentive system for stars. That is, if the stop has both Women and Men at the event, the disciplines receive an extra star (e.g, San Gervasio Pro Am had $12k for M and $12k for W, so each discipline is 2 stars).

Additionally, disciplines within an event cannot be of more than one star difference (i.e., $3k). That being said, we conceded two exception this year where the gap was bigger. Each case was examined individually and it was deemed appropriate to not punish the organizer or risk the removal of a discipline as a result.

@Than_Bogan It was very interesting to see how 1) the star incentive to have both W and M seemed enough to have all events with W and with higher money than before. Also, 2) curious to see how organizers are "fighting" for star recognition ;)
