- Awards are
tentatively schedules at 3:30 in the Great Room
No racers may run, side slip, or shadow the course during their pre-race inspection. To
do so risks immediate disqualification.
All racers are expected to be at the start at the proper time. Racers who miss
their start will run at the end of the order. The running order will be reversed
within each seed in the second run (if registration was received on time).
A racer who has a binding release in the course is an automatic DSQ. However,
if a racer loses one ski after passing the second to last gate on the course,
(s)he may attempt to complete the race on one ski.
If a racer misses a gate and chooses to climb, (s)he must cross the horizontal
plane on either side of the gate that was missed before continuing down the course.
However, if a racer falls, and skis stay on, and (s)he is hiking, they must yield
to an oncoming racer or be disqualified.
If a racer feels his or her run has been interfered with, (s)he must ski out of
the course where the infraction occurs. No protest will be allowed if the racer
completes the course and/or crosses through the finish line. The racer must then
ski to the finish area and await the decision of race officials as to whether
or not a (provisional) rerun will be granted.
are mandatory in the Giant Slalom, and recommended for Slalom.
sum of the placing of each team’s top three finishers for each event will be totaled
to determine overall order of team finish. Teams with less than 3 finishers take
n + 1 for the placing of the missing racer towards the team score. Individual
awards will be given for each discipline, and for team scoring in both events
combined, with top three teams receiving plaques. Team scoring will be determined
by taking the sum of placings in both Slalom and GS. In the event of a tie for
the combined Slalom and GS score, lowest total time for the top three finishers
for both GS and Slalom events would then be used to break the tie.
