G2 Level 8 Cutoff Question

TDLTDL Posts: 12 Baller
The level 8 cutoff score for G2 Slalom is listed as 54 bouys, [email protected]/LL. Can a G2 skier qualify for Nationals with a score of [email protected]/15 off?

    Cut off shows 54 buoys! With ZBS now in the rules, how she gets her 54 buoys is up too her/you.
    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    How does ZBS apply for the kids competing at Nationals? I thought I had seen some things that said it doesn't apply at Nationals but it does for qualification.

    @Chef23, I believe you can still shorten before divisional max speed and get credit at those events. It is when you opt to ski faster than your traditional age division max that you do not get the commensurate score and are scored as though you skied at the divisional max speed.
    The worst slalom equipment I own is between my ears.

    I don't believe the lower speed buoys count for world rankings (which you can get at Nationals). @JeffSurdej ?

    Also be aware that some older scoring programs might not record or transmit the lower speed scores properly. I have a score in the ranking list that did not give me credit for the underspeed shortenings. If the scores are critical, check the results and make sure they match the performance.

    ZBS is fun!

    Imo ZBS is one of the best moves the sport has made in a long time. It's fun to shorten the rope. At 57 I skied more sets this year and this was the first season in the past 4 or 5 that I haven't struggled with nagging injuries. I attribute that to training at 32mph. I look forward to returning to a few local tourneys next season. Thanks to @JeffSurdej and others at USAWS.
