DQ NOTE For the second run only DQ’s will be posted. It is your responsibility to check the board for DQ’s whether you think you DQed or not and notify the race director within 30 minutes after your run - after this time there will be no protests.
1. The race will be conducted by the race officials, whose decisions are final. There is no provision for appeals after a final decision. You have 30 minutes after your run to take issue with the race director regarding any timing or DQ questions.
2. The rider should be in the “start area” five minutes before his/her run.
3. The start procedure consists of all racers beginning from a
“Start Area” which will be indicated as such. The rider and the snowboard must be inside the perimeter of the “Start Area” prior to the beginning of the run. Violation of this rule will result in immediate disqualification.
4. The rider must be on his/her board when crossing the finish line. Failure to do so will result in disqualification.
5. The rider must pass through timing eye at the finish line. Failure to do so will result in disqualification. Timing eye is located 6 to 20 inches off the ground depending on terrain. In other words, don’t ollie over the finish!
6. Disqualification will also result if:
A. Improper start:
1. Leaving the start before signaled.
2. Not being inside the start at time of the start signal.
B. Missing any gate. You must go between innermost bamboo gates in the race order. Any questions just ask.
C. Unsportsmanlike conduct (You know what that means…)
D. By obstructing other racers during the contest or tripping the finish line at any other time than your run.
E. Any violation of any of our Mountain Policies, Rules, & Laws.
F. Attempting to race while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
G. Reckless behavior or disregard for the safety of others while at the ski area.
7. Your time will be posted at the finish area as quickly as possible. Please do not pester the finish volunteer, as they work very hard to get you accurate times as soon as possible.
8. Go fast!
Any race rules or info changes will be posted at the start area.
