For those who are new, or those who just forgot, a bit of explanation....
***The Main Marathons use the 1000 point system. Each skier drops their worst race (lowest point race, dnf, didn’t ski, etc). Driver and observers count all races. Top 10 drivers are recognized.
***The Mini uses the “circle” point system (same as used at US Open). Skiers drop their worst race. Top 5 drivers and observers are recognized.
***The 1 day event at Big Bear in 2017 is not included as it was not officially timed/scored.
***Test and Tune teams do not accumulate points. However, if a Test and Tune skier wins a race overall, their time and laps are still used to determine points for the rest of the teams.
NWSRA memberships are valid for 12 months and can be renewed at any time on the "Registration and Store" page. All participants (drivers, skiers and observers) must also be active members of USAWS. Please be sure to review the complete membership requirements on the "Rules and Membership" page.
