This weekend I hear that a junior at the end of his pass can elect to go up in speed or shorten the line. No longer does one have to reach max division speed before shortening. I have no objection but can someone explain the scoring. If you are a boys 3 and normally would get to 36 before going to 22 off you can now do it @ 32 or 34. If you ran 28 off 32 mph what would your score be? Would it be the same as 28 off @ 36? or ?
Something eles I was made aware of was that if you miss the entrance gate on your first run and still ski the full course and complete your next pass you score all the points. If you don't ski the course or do not make the second 6 you score 0! My boy learned that one the hard way. Missed the gate and thought he was done!
