Awards - A new spin on Badges for WB+

WB Plus Admin -


The team here behind WB+ is excited to bring a fun new dynamic to the platform with awards. You're all familiar with badges, and we can see behind the scenes that you love working towards them, so we wanted to offer a new challenge. An award is an exclusive thing: only one user can hold it any one time so if you want to be King of the Hill today, you've gotta go wrestle it out of Vertbag's hands, 'cause come on, let's be honest...

We will be adding Award information to the FAQ soon, but to answer a few quick questions:

  • How are awards different from badges?
    • Well, there's only one of each to give out so only one user across the whole of WB+ can hold any single award at any one time
    • Following on from that, similar to some of our badges, you can lose your award if somebody overtakes you
  • Who can earn awards?
    • Honestly, probably only some pretty dedicated individuals, but technically anybody that has their Privacy set to Social or Private (same as for Leaderboards)
  • What awards are there?
    • King/Queen of the Hill: WB+ user with the most vertical for the day
    • Prince(ss) of the Hill: Second most vertical for the day
    • Duke/Duchess: Third biggest vert for the day
    • Chairman of the Board: Top vertical for the season, that spans both public and staff
    • Secretary of the Board: Second overall vertical for the season
    • Treasurer of the Board: Third overall vertical
    • Mayor of the Chair: Most rides for a particular lift for the season
    • Manager of the Chair: Second most rides on that lift all season
    • Auditor of the Chair: Third highest ride count all season for that chair
    • King/Queen of the Mountain: Single biggest day for the whole season
    • Prince(ss) of the Mountain: Second biggest day of the season
    • Duke/Duchess of the Mountain: Third biggest overall day
  • Will there be other awards?
    • Absolutely. These were the most obvious initial ones to recognise those real dedicated folk but we will be trickling out more awards in the coming weeks for a variety of achievements
  • I'm a girl, why am I King/Prince/Duke?
  • I'm a boy, why am I Queen/Princess/Duchess?
    • Go to your Account Settings and ensure you're selected the appropriate gender
