** BONUS LEAGUES

Each participant gets to take either ONE extra run or TWO extra runs at each race depending on the particular bonus league and as time permits.  Only the best time in each run will be used to determine handicaps.  Ski Challenge scoring will then be implemented using those two handicaps.  Only the best times in each course will be sent to NASTAR.  Running orders must be followed for all four runs.  If a bonus league gets more teams, it will then become a normal league with one run in each course.

Regular Season Bonus leagues include:


End of Season Awards

TEAM CHAMPIONS
The winning team of each league is determined by adding up the points earned each week by the top six racers. If there is a tie, we go to the total of 7 racers, then 8 and so on.

Medals will be given to the top three teams.

FASTEST OF THE LEAGUE
The fastest of the league is determined by averaging all handicaps for the entire season. Medals will be given to the top three winners and ribbons to 4th and 5th in the female, male, girl and boy category. Kids and adults will not be separated out in our All Age leagues. Kids and adults will be separated out in the Adult + Kids leagues. You must have participated in at least four regular season races in your particular league in order to qualify for this award.

MOST IMPROVED OF THE LEAGUE
This is determined by looking at overall improvement throughout the season. We look at both dropping handicap points throughout the season and also consistently getting better or going down each week.
You must have participated in at least four regular season races in your particular league in order to qualify for this award.

MOST VALUABLE OF THE SEASON
This is based on medal average (usually getting a Platinum), how much you get your medal by (based on age and gender), and attendance.  This award is not given to Adults and Kids separately.  There is only one Most Valuable of each league and can be either and Adult or Kid in the All Age and Adult + Kid leagues.

TEAM AWARDS
FASTEST – Fastest on your team based on rated handicap (drop your best and worse and average remaining out).
MOST IMPROVED – Most improved person on your team.
Certificates will be given to all winners.

End of year awards are given at Race #7. Please allow for a little more time between the completion of the race and the award ceremonies. Our staff will try and get the awards ready as quickly as possible.
