Rules of Racing

Cross Country Wax Rule

Schools are reminded of the new waxing rule for this years Interschools Championships.  The rule is designed to encourage a level playing field for competition and aligns with an initiative being adopted by Ski and Snowboard Australia’s National Cross Country Committee for all club and state level Cross Country races.

While the rule will be based on an honour system and peer group review, Event Organisers reserve the right to inspect or test waxing practices in the interest of fairness.

The specific rule is set out below.

14.6 - Only no-fluoro or low-fluoro waxes are to be used for glide waxing (such as Swix LF7, LF8 or LF10), with no high-fluoro waxes or high/pure fluorocarbon coats (liquids, powders, blocks) to be used

Download the 2017 Slopestyle Competition guide.

How to enter: School Coordinators can enter competitors into Slopestyle events via the online entry system under the event "NSW State Championships".

Schools Coordinators Responsibility: Each school coordinator prior to entering a student in the event must deem that the student has the appropriate level of skill and experience to compete. Questions that must be asked by each coordinator to the participant are:

• Can you execute a controlled straight air on a ‘green’ or ‘S’ (Small) category jump?
• Can you execute a controlled 50/50 (snowboard) or straight grind (skier) on a 5metre box?
• Do you have the ability to ride/ ski switch in a controlled way down a blue run?

National Qualification Rule:  The top 10 Individuals only will qualify for the Australian Interschools Championships. 

With all Slopestyle Events, no Championship School points are awarded at State or Australian Events. Due to scheduling of the Interschools events on August 24, students will not be able to compete in both the Slopestyle and cross country events.
