Alpine Officials Manual

Updates for 2015-16.

The USSA Alpine Officials Education Working Group has assembled a comprehensive manual for alpine officials. The manual is distributed to all USSA Alpine Officials on a CD as well as here on the website. This manual is a guide to race organization, the rules, and duties of officials, timing and calculations, and other subject areas important to alpine officials throughout the country.

It is intended to be as thorough as possible with updates and revisions produced as necessary. However, it is not meant to be a step-by-step ‘cookbook’ with definitive procedures for every race situation.

The Alpine Officials Manual has been updated for the 2016 season.
