Important Jr. Intermountain Cup announcement

Hello Everyone,

It is with excitement Park City Ski and Snowboard is welcoming you to Park City Mountain next week for the final JR. Intermountain Cup / U14 Qualifying Series of 2021. The conditions at Eagle Race Arena are currently the best we have seen all season so with a little help from mother nature it should carry on forward through this series. 

To help ensure smooth and successful races we ask for everyones prompt attention and support of our COVID-19 protocols. The safety of our guests and membership is priority, hence why everyones adherence to the following protocols is of outmost importance.

  • No spectators are allowed inside/near the race venue. This means only registered/pre-screened athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers are allowed inside the race venue and base area.
  • The athletes will have an allocated area at the base of the Eagle lift for their gear. Any unattended bags or other gear left outside of this area are at risk of being removed from the premises. The bag area is not an hangout area for the athletes! There is ample room for athletes and staff to safely spread out below the finish corral. We will not allow team tents or other items that may promote congregation. 
  • Face coverings must be worn on the mountain at all times. Athletes are allowed to pull down their face cover as they enter the start gate but it must remain on until that point – and it must go back up before they exit the finish corral.
  • We recommend that the athletes pack a lunch/snacks. Most restaurants at PCM require a reservation for service.
  • Athletes and staff should do their best to socially distance at all times and maintain a minimum distance of 6’ to others. This include the areas on the venue where coaches typically tend to congregate.
  • All coaches, officials and volunteers will be wearing an armband for easier identification of who’s allowed inside the venue.
  • PCSS will use volunteers to help ensure COVID-19 protocols are being met. Please treat them with the respect they deserve, they are there for everyone’s safety.
  • Athletes and staff should avoid riding the chairlift with persons other than their respective team.
  • In addition to Park City Mountain protocols – US Ski and Snowboard race protocols should be followed.
  • If we cannot satisfy the safety protocols and our contractual duty to Park City Mountain the races will be placed on hold and/or canceled if problems persist. 
Other pertinent information…
    1. PCM WAIVER – All athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers are required to complete/submit a Park City Mountain Release before stepping onto the venue. CLICK HERE to complete the waiver.
    2. LIFT TICKETS – Athlete lift tickets will be available for purchase at the First Time ticket window in the morning of the race. The cost of a racer ticket is $40/day. We do recommend that teams that arrive before 4pm on Sunday or Tuesday to purchase tickets in advance (please use the resort plaza ticket windows for afternoon purchases). Multi-day tickets are available and recommended. Coaches tickets will be available in the finish area in the morning. Comped tickets are only available to coaches that are included in the team entry.
    3. COVID-19 PRE-SCREEN – All athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers must complete a Pre-Screen Questionnaire 24-48 hours before the start of the series. Please complete it HERE either Saturday or Sunday (3/6-7) for the girls races or Monday or Tuesday (3/8-9) for the boys. Coaches who will be here all four days are only required to submit the Pre-Screen Questionnaire once before the start of the series.
    4. COVID-19 DAILY HEALTH SCREEN – All athletes, coaches, officials and volunteers are also required to complete a Daily Health Screen no later than 7:30am each day. The link to the Health Screen can be found HERE.
    5. RACE COMMUNICATION – Start lists and race results will be available on live-timing. Day-of race information for coaches only will be communicated through WhatsApp – group link can be found on the race announcement. 
    6. TEAM CAPTAINS MEETINGS: The first TC Meeting for this series will be held at 7pm on Sunday, March 7th. A Zoom link will be communicated over WhatsApp approximately 2 hours before the meeting. The meeting link will remain the same for all TC meetings throughout the series.
    7. Finally, please be respectful of slow zone areas, train parks, and other high trafficked areas on the mountain. Also, with the recent storms in the area, snowpacks are unstable!

Please share these notes with everyone attending the races.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. We look forward to great races!

2021 Snowbasin SGs canceled

Hi All,
Due to the snow conditions/surface and the amount of snow falling in the SLC area, the U14 Snowbasin SGs are canceled.  Please pass this on to families so they can cancel lodging.  We are uncertain at this time whether or not we will be able to reschedule. The Snowbasin Ski Team will explore all options and if there is a possibility of inserting the SGs back in the schedule, we will let you know.

The COVID-19 committee will address selection procedures in the event that we don’t have SG contested this season.

Please thank your parents and athletes for their patience.  Seriously, if it’s not one thing  … it’s another.

2021 U16 Nationals canceled

A message from Chip Knight:

Dear Alpine Leaders,

Regrettably, I am writing to inform you that we have decided to cancel this year’s U16 Nationals.  There were many reasons behind this decision, chief among them were the challenges of creating a meaningful regional qualification system in the midst of so many different state-based COVID regulations, as well as the inequity of access to competition around the country.

Instead of the National competition event, we are planning regional skills projects during the month of April.  Please stay tuned for more information about those opportunities in the coming weeks.

http://usskiandsnowboard.org/news/2021-u16-alpine-national-championships-cancelled

Feel free to share this information to your distribution lists.

Thanks,

Chip Knight

AO COVID-19 update from AOEWG

Here is an update/clarification from the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Alpine Officials Education Working Group Chair Lucy Conklin:

Covid-19 Policy Plan for Officials Certification 2020-21

OC’s should do everything possible within their power to use appropriately certified personnel for all duties within their event that require certified individuals.

TD’s, Referees & Course Setters must be certified.
CR, CC, JA, RA, TnC – should be certified; however, if a certified individual is not available, the jury may use the most experienced person available to fill this position provided they have at least a CO certification, reviewed the 2021 Alpine Review and Update, and have current official’s membership.
The possibility for non-certified officials and coaches to serve in a mentee capacity with the jury to gain experience as assistants is possible and can be logged by the individual (MPF 70 AO Personal Activity Record) to be used by their division for future officials upgrades. Exams for certification will be available at a later time once the current pandemic situation has changed to a more favorable situation. Online Course Official training and exam are currently being developed and will be made available once complete.

Due to COVID-19 Alpine Officials and Referee exams will not be provided until the health situation changes to more favorable place. Unfortunately, there will be no exceptions to this policy. Please use the best possible people to serve your events and be sure to provide access to training materials like the AO Manual and the Specialty Study Guides for each. It is all of our responsibility to make sure that all parties assigned in an official capacity have appropriate time to learn their position, the requirements of the position and how to execute the position. In effect studying the material so as prepared to complete a successful exam.

Pre-registration will be required and each training session will be limited to 20 participants. If your last update year is 2019, you must attend an Update and Review training session this year.
  • Testing for advancement in AO specialty areas (TD, RF, CR, CC, RA and TC) will not be available during the 2020-21 season.
  • TD Workshop session will be scheduled for IMD TDs who are required to attend an update each season. That Zoom session will also be scheduled and require pre-registration.
  • The Competition Official Course and Quiz are available for download now from Alpine 101. This course is a required pre-requisite for attending any AO specialty area course and testing. While there will be no specialty area testing this season, you can complete the CO course and get that requirement out of the way.

Please watch this news item for updates and changes as the season progresses. The pandemic requires us to be fluid and ready to change as the situation develops.

If you have questions, you can post them in the Alpine 101 COVID-19 Forum and we will do our best to field them.


Required CO course and quiz are up

The Competition Official downloadable online course and quiz for the 2020-21 season are now available.

Get them here.

The course and quiz must be completed by all new Alpine officials (those officials who do not have an AO classification in any specialty area). It is a mandatory prerequisite for attending any Alpine officials clinic.

The 2020-21 Update and Review is also available in the same Alpine 101 General Discussion Forum. The Update and Review course will be provided this season only via Zoom online clinics. It is required of all Alpine officials whose last update year is 2019. If you are behind and your last update year is 2018, you also should attend.


IMD COVID-19 Forum is online

The Intermountain Division Alpine COVID-19 Forum is online.

We will update the forum as new information becomes available both on the national Alpine level and within IMD.


U.S. Ski & Snowboard releases COVID-19 Alpine guidance document

U.S. Ski & Snowboard has released its guidance document for Alpine ski racing during the 2020-21 season. See it here: U.S. Ski & Snowboard COVID-19 Alpine Domestic Competitions Guidance

Please download this document and digest it. It contains new rules, procedures and a new race organizing committee position, the COVID-19 Coordinator, that will be in place for the coming season. Parents, coaches and athletes should know this document inside and out.

Also, U.S. Ski & Snowboard, in an effort to keep its members informed about COVID-19 as the 2020-21 competition season nears, has launched a COVID-19 resource section on its website.

See it here: https://usskiandsnowboard.org/covid-19


Alpine Officials should renew their memberships now

IMD Alpine officials who have not renewed their memberships for the 2020-21 competition season should do so now.

Because of COVID-19, it is taking longer than usual to complete background checks. Expect this delay. Reduced operating hours in our courts and government offices are two of the contributing factors.

If you wait until the race season begins you may be pending for most of the season.

Login to my.ussa.org to renew.

Also, watch this space for updates, new regulations and operating procedures for U.S. Ski & Snowboard events. Guidelines and requirements for putting on Alpine events are expected around the end of September 2020.


IMD response to early end of 2020 competition season

To all of IMD’s valued members:

As most of you might know, U.S. Ski & Snowboard has put a halt on all sanctioned domestic events beginning on March 16. This includes Tri-Divisionals, U14 Regionals, WRJC, IMD projects and the Snow Cup Finale. While this is sad news, it is imperative that we view this with understanding and compassion as all of us need to do our part in slowing down the transmission of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Here is the Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/index.html

The IMD Championships at Bogus Basin this weekend have also been canceled.

Because of the loss of competitive opportunities, IMD will work hard in the next few months to come up with opportunities in the fall, assuming the world health climate has settled down.

A few housekeeping items:

  1. The Bryce Astle IMC winners will be announced next week. The title usually extends through the Snow Cup but will be cut short this season. The awards will be given to the clubs to distribute to the athletes.
  2. IMD Grant recipients will retain their grants to use for future competitions even though the event was not contested.
  3. IMD’s U14 Regional Teams will be refunded their project fees. If team members wish to purchase the team jacket, a black Spyder jacket with the red, white and blue IMD on the back, contact me (carma@imdalpine.org).

Be safe, put on your goggles, buff and gloves and go skiing … it seems like the safest place to be!

Carma Burnett
IMD Alpine Director

U.S. Ski & Snowboard Cancels All Remaining Domestic Events

Due to the recently enacted European travel restrictions, and ongoing concerns in the United States and Canada regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), U.S. Ski & Snowboard is cancelling all remaining U.S. domestic events, and working to return all U.S. Ski & Snowboard athletes back to the United States. In addition, Alpine Canada, and Nordiq Canada have cancelled events to coincide with U.S. Ski & Snowboard.
