What do I do at the First Race?
Whether you are new to Ski Challenge, or back for another season, you need to arrive a little earlier for the first race of the season. Prior to racing, check in at the registration table in the designated room. At Buck Hill we meet in the Black Diamond Event Center above the ski school At Wild Mountain our Sunday League registration table will be set up in the Robert C room next to the Eagle's Nest Bar and Grill. Fridays and Wednesday nights at Wild we will be set up in the Eagle's Newst Bar and Grill.
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 Ryan Cochran-Siegle would have gotten on the course. (e.g. 15 handicap = 15 percent behind Ryan's time). The National Standard is the Par Time or Ryan Cochran-Siegle's "0" handicap which every racer competes against when they race NASTAR.
Pacesetters earn certified handicaps that are used to set Ryan Cochran-Siegle's Par Time for their course. Participants earn a handicap each time they race which represents the difference between the racer's time and the Par Time expressed as a percentage. Your handicap can vary from race to race.
Does a handicap change or get better with your age and gender?
ABSOLUTELY NOT! A handicap is a straight percentage. It's math. We take your time and compare it to the par time. Then we determine 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!
