Pacesetting Information

SKI CHALLENGE PACESETTER TRIALS

Trials were held at Afton Alps and Buck Hill on Thursday, December 21.  Racers competed against Daron Rahlves, NASTAR traveling pacesetter.  Follow this link for RESULTS.

WILD MOUNTAIN PACESETTERS

If you are a Wild Mountain racer and could not make the trials at Buck Hill, you can get a number at the first regular season Sunday AM and/or DAY league on January 7.   REGISTER  here.
 
What is a HANDICAP??

A handicap represents the percentage your time is behind a par time or National Standard Par, in this case a time that Casey Puckett would have gotten on the course. (e.g. 15 handicap = 15 percent behind Casey's time). The National Standard is the Par Time or Casey Puckett's "0" handicap which every racer competes against when they race NASTAR.

Does a handicap change or get better with your age and gender?

ABSOLUTELY NOT!

A handicap is a straight percentage. It is straight math. We take your time and compare it to the par time. Then we detrmine what percent slower your time is compared to the par time. So, the person in the race with the lowest time has the lowest handicap in a given run. Age and gender DO NOT change straight times or handicaps!


Results

Results are posted on the Ski Challenge and NASTAR websites the day following a race.  Ski Challenge results will show you the overall team and individual ranking for the race.  It will also show you each team's score sheet.  NASTAR will show your individual handicaps for the season (and past seasons) for all leagues you participate in.  You can find results by following the links below:
