About Mid-Atlantic Masters Ski Racing

Mid-Atlantic Masters Skiing, Inc., is a non-profit corporation that administers the Foy Cup Series.  This series offers a season-long schedule of races and awards to the overall and class winners for men and women, juniors, and teams.  Mid-Atlantic Master's roots originated from the ASRA ski race organization, which was formed by John (A.J.) Foy. 

 

We welcome all levels of skiers looking for the challenge of a longer course, including former junior or college racers, racing parents, juniors who hold a USSA license, serious Nastar racers, and others who just love to ski race.  We also welcome participants from other regions and divisions to join us.  We encourage family participation, and provide seasonal awards for families, teams, and individuals.  Above all, our primary goal is to have fun and enjoy challenging ski racing at the same time.  

 

Mid-Atlantic (MA) Masters hosts races from December through March in New York, Vermont, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.  We hold GS, SL, and SG races.  Points are awarded by finish position in each age category, and season champions are recognized at the MA Masters Championships in March.  Teams are also scored at each race and for the overall team championship.

Entry Procedures, Sign Ups and Deadlines

  1. Online registration for all races may be completed at www.skiracereg.com/mam .   After October 1st, racers should update their skiracereg account with current credit card and email information.  New racers will need to create a skiracereg account prior to registration.  New and out of division racers should change to or select the “Mid Atlantic” Race series at the top of the home page.  There is no extra cost to use skiracereg--it is fast and simple.

  2. The cut-off for race entry is noon on the day before the first race of the event (usually held over a weekend).  Start lists will be generated the night before the race, then posted at racer check in.  All racers should check in and review the start list for errors (and notify check in personnel, if necessary) by 8:15 am on race day.

  3. Day-of race registrations generally will NOT be accepted--you must be on the start list prepared the day prior to the race to compete.  If you are allowed by the race organizer to submit a late entry after the deadline has been reached, please be aware that a late fee of $10 may be charged.  Late submissions will be permitted only for extenuating circumstances.

  4. Please be sure that you have your US Ski & Snowboard license prior to the race.  There are instructions in the upper part of this document.

  5. If the race is cancelled (e.g., due to weather), your credit card will not be charged.  If you cancel your registration prior to the cutoff deadline (i.e., noon the day before the first race of the event), your credit card will not be charged.  If you do not cancel prior to the cut-off time, you will not be charged for the registration, but there will be a $15 DNS fee. 

  6. Racers entered in a race can be viewed on skiracereg.com prior to the race date.

Race Bibs & Equipment

  1. Bibs are available for purchase through Mid-Atlantic Masters at www.skiracereg.com.  You need to be a member of Mid-Atlantic Masters to get to the order form.  It will be on the left just below your name.  A purchased bib will serve as your permanent bib and racer identifier for all regular Mid-Atlantic Races.  It is the responsibility of each racer to keep the bib in good condition, bring it to each race, and wear the bib during all races.  If you forget your bib, you will be issued a temporary; in this case, please advise the starter of your permanent bib number, so that your race times and scoring can be recorded accurately. 

  2. Out of division guests will be issued a temporary loaner bib.

  3. Temporary bibs must be returned after the racer’s last race of the weekend.  A fee of $25 will be charged for unreturned bibs.

  4.   It is recommended that Masters use helmets that meet the FIS standards for all U.S. Ski & Snowboard GS, SG and DH competitions. The helmet must bear a “CE” mark and conform to one or more of the following helmet standards: CEH.Din 1077, ASTM F2040, SNELL S98 or RS98. Helmets which meet the new FIS standard have a sticker affixed by the manufacturer that states “Conforms to FIS Specification RH 2013”.

Start Order/Seeding

First and second run seeding (start order) will alternate between the oldest women and men’s classes through class 10, followed by all the remaining women’s and   men’s classes--not alternating, from oldest to youngest.  Juniors U14 or less will run prior to all other classes.  US Ski & Snowboard classes may be found at link.  The jury may change the start order at its discretion.  If a Mid-Atlantic Masters race is held concurrently with a US Ski & Snowboard Junior or open race, the Masters division will be scored as a separate race.


First and second run seeding within classes will be by random draw among those entries received by the entry deadline.  Late entrants and those racing on a short-term membership will run last in their respective classes.      


All racers holding a Masters or USSA junior seasonal or short-term license may compete in the Mid-Atlantic Masters Skiing Championships (all events); however, only those who are also Mid-Atlantic Masters members will qualify for championship awards and door prizes.

Scoring

Only Mid-Atlantic Masters members may earn points toward the overall seasonal and class (age group) awards.  Foy Cup overall (top five men and top five women) and season-long class results (top three in each class) will be determined by scoring the individual's best 8 races identified as Mid-Atlantic points races. To determine a racer's best 8 races, overall points are used. Overall scoring is based on the Alpine World Cup point scoring system (more details on overall scoring can be found at link)                    

If two or more racers are tied after their 8 best races are counted, the tie will be broken by the racer who has the most firsts, then seconds, then thirds of the scored 8 races.  If the racers are still tied, the tie will be broken by going to each racer’s ninth best result, then tenth, and so on until the tie has been broken.  If the racers are still tied after all race finishes are counted, they shall remain tied or resort to a snow wrestling match to break the tie.

 

To encourage cross-regional participation in larger events, some pre-identified races outside the Mid-Atlantic division (i.e., New England Masters, New York Masters) will count toward a racer’s overall season scoring, for both class and overall Foy Cup championships.  Scoring for these races will include all participants, however, only Mid-Atlantic Masters members are scored in the overall seasonal scoring.

The Mid-Atlantic Masters Skiing Championship (end-of-season) Giant Slalom Race will be scored within predetermined ability groups, rather than by age groups.  You will be placed in an ability group based on your average of points across all completed races.

 

Team Scoring:

Teams will be scored at each race by counting the top four finishers for each team.  Each team may include up to 12 racers.  Should a team not have enough finishers, ghost times will be used (the time of the slowest racer that qualified for team scoring, plus 30 seconds). Team scoring is based on age and gender handicap points for a team's best 8 races identified as Mid-Atlantic points races. Team scoring is based on the Alpine World Cup point scoring system.   All team members must be members of Mid-Atlantic Masters.  You can register your team at the following link.  More details input on team rules are contained in this document.

 

IronMan (person):

An IronMan award will be presented to the person (man or woman) who completes the most starts for the season, and who has not yet won the award. 

 

Other Scoring

Family – There will be a seasonal award for parent(s) & child teams.  Either parent may race with their child, and the best races for each family will count towards the award.
