Colored liquid vegetable dye sprayed in a narrow line at the side of the track ("the line") that gives the skiers definition of the course. Definition lines are also sprayed on the track at right angles near jumps and other severe changes in the pitch of the course, or where visibility for skiers may be poor.

Dye is prepared using a combination of water, windshield washer fluid and a dark blue colouring agent. The colouring agent most often cited is blue liquid food coloring, although other water soluble dye in liquid or powder form is also used. The coloring agent must be able to emulsify in both water and alcohol.

Applied by the Dye Crew.
