  6. No competitor/official may consumer alcohol due the race day, this may result in disqualification.
  7. Important – in line with changes to FIS rules, hiking back up the slope or coming to a complete stop will result in that run being disqualified. We will be applying this rule to timed runs and head to heads only. Due to the nature of team races, the team relay events will still allow hiking back up the slope if a gate is missed.
  8. Racers are expected to complete timed runs and head to heads as these will impact the seasons results. If any racer cannot compete in their head to head races, then please speak to the committee to discuss the reasons. Otherwise, there may be an impact on your season rankings.
  9. Racers are expected and encouraged to attend the prize giving. Winners of medals should collect their medal in persons. If a medal winner has to leave early, then please speak to the committee to discuss the reasons. Medals will only be given to others to pass on in exceptional circumstances.

Code of Conduct

We wish to remind all racers, coaches, parents and spectators that appropriate personal conduct is expected at all Snowsport South events. Whilst a competitive atmosphere is to be encouraged, inappropriate or unsportsmanlike behaviour will not be tolerated and can ultimately lead to sanctions, including suspension from Snowsport South events. Examples of such behaviour include: equipment abuse, swearing, aggressive behaviour, discrimination of any form, heated arguments, disrespect shown to any official or volunteer. All Snowsport South events are “family friendly” environments with appropriate behaviour to be demonstrated at all times.
