Tournament Details

Format Description:
TOURNAMENT FORMAT Thursday-Friday: U17 and younger, and M/W 3+. One round of each event Saturday: U21, Men and Women, and Elite Divisions One round of each event Sunday -SLALOM: HEAD to HEAD competition (rules below). -TRICKS: Top 6 scores compete in the finals, men and women together (only 1 division). A minimum of 1 skier per gender must be represented. There will be a prize for best male and best female score. -JUMP: Top 8 scores compete in the finals, men and women together (only 1 division). A minimum of 1 skier per gender must be represented.There will be a prize for best male and best female score. -Slalom will NOT be Record Capability on Sunday. -There will be NO overall score calculated on Sunday. SLALOMíS HEAD TO HEAD BASIC RULES: -All the winners from every division in the Nationalís tournament will automatically be qualified -There will be 2 slalom courses side by side, also 2 boats running side by side. -No divisions: men, women, boys, girls will all compete against each other. -Leader board will be established according to the final score in the ĒNationalísĒ round (# of buoys and line length i.e. 3@12m)) -The starting speed for both skiers will be determined by the lowest qualifying score of the pair -The maximum speed for both skiers will be determined by the lowest qualifying score (or skier with the lowest max speed) of the pair -The rope shortening speed for both skiers will be determined by the lowest qualifying score (or skier with the lowest max speed) of the pair -The skier who sets the starting speed cannot start any slower than they did in the Nationalís tournament -There will be prizes for top the 3 skiers. EXAMPLE, G1 skier (with score of 1 @ 14m) competes against M3 skier (with score of 3 @ 12m): the G1 skier would set starting speed (not slower than qualifying round) for both skiers, the maximum speed would be 49kph for both skiers, rope would be shortened at 49kph for both skiers. Since most skiers from the Open Division will be at the World Championship, a different formula for the Sunday event was needed. This format has been tested for many years in local tournaments and proved to be one of the most fun tournament of the season each time. We hope everyone will enjoy it, as it gives a running chance for everyone who qualifies.
