Blue Hills Alpine Racing Challenge Cup Championship 2023
Each qualifying race will consist of two runs; each run will be scored separately.
Teams and individuals may qualify.
Teams and individuals must have two 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.
**The qualifying races will be one SL and one GS.
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 5 classifications: U12 coed; U14 coed; U16 female; U16 male; U19 female; U19 male and Collegiate & Masters female & male. 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 2 qualifying runs (there will be 4 qualifying runs total). For each individual and team member, the best 2 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.
