The Level I Alpine Officials course is an excellent introduction to the organization, rules and procedures for Alpine ski racing. It is recommended for all parents who will ever be involved helping out with races (e.g. gate judge, timer or record keeper, or even coat runners to know how the race course is organized and where you can and cannot safely go), and especially for team managers (e.g. involvement in scoring and race DSQs, and generally helping to shift burden away from coaches to let them focus on the racers on-hill). It is also a critical step to provide both the Alpine Officials and the racers access to the Canadian Snowsports Association’s comprehensive liability insurance coverage should anything unfortunate happen during the conduct of a race. It can also be a lot of fun and a great way to meet the your ski community.
