Blue Hills Alpine Championship 2022
Each qualifying race will consist of two runs; each run will be scored separately. Teams and individuals may qualify.
Teams and individuals must have three runs to qualify for scoring in the Championship event. Each qualifier** and the Championship will be started as a mixed gender, random seed. Team seeding will be one member from each team up to 7 seven seeds and teams may select their order 1 thru 7.
**There will be one SL and two GS qualifying races.
Race scoring will be per run according to finish place points; lowest points = highest qualifier. For example, 1st place = 1 point, 2nd place = 2 points, 25th place = 25 points and so on.
In addition, teams will be scored. Team race scoring will be based on the top 5 places from up to seven members (teams may enter with only 5 members). Athletes on teams will qualify for both individual and team awards by place finish. Teams may consist of 5, 6 or 7 members, though each team member must compete in the same age bracket. Teams must provide a roster to enter; no substitutions will be permitted.
There are 3 age brackets: U14/U12; U19 & U16 per gender and Collegiate & Masters. Teams may consist of up to seven members with the top five athletes scoring race points. Younger athletes may participate on older age bracket teams, but older may NOT participate on younger teams.
Each racer/team must have a minimum of 3 qualifying runs (there will be 6 qualifying runs total; 2 runs in each of the 3 qualifying races). For each individual and team member, the best 3 finish places count towards qualifying for the Championship event; the sum of the best (lowest points) three run race scores will be calculated towards team and individual qualifying results.
The Challenge Cup shall be scored based on finish place points of that event (qualifying race points allow racers to enter the Championship, but do not count in the Championship race).
Races entries will be limited; Blue Hills reserves the right to limit registrants and move race dates so events occur on snow surface conditions that are fun and typical spring conditions. Weather dates may be Tuesday, March 8, Thursday, March 10 or as announced.
Athletes that select the 3 race discount option will not be refunded if they do not attend a race. Refunds may occur if Blue Hills Alpine Racing cancels an event, rather than changes the date.
