SSSA Indoor Slalom

As part of last week’s announcement about the disappointing cancellation of the 2017 SSSA Alpine Series, we indicated that SnowSport Scotland would be scheduling an extra indoor event, so as to provide Alpine Racing for all our Scottish Schools.

FORMAT:

This indoor event will be set as a combination of Slalom and Giant Slalom style turns and a mini feature (jump) half-way.  The event will include a skier’s course inspection followed by two timed runs per competitor.  Two courses will be set with Females skiing one course and Males on the other. 

Course Inspection will be from outside of the racing line to prevent unnecessary wear on the course.  There is no Novice specific category but novices are encouraged to enter and form part of the school teams.
