The handicap system provides a means of rating the skier against the course and of evaluating the individual's performance as the season progresses.
Each racer's handicap is calculated based on his/her time and Zero Par (Zp) for the course.
Zero Par (Zp) is based on the time(s) in which rated pacesetters run the course. The pacesetter's rating is used for this calculation. This rating is determined at an annual pacesetter's meet. Selected league racers run the courses at the pacesetter meet. The average of their four best (lowest) handicaps are used.
EXAMPLE: If a pacesetter had handicaps of 31.06, 28.00, 30.04, 30.65, 29.82, and 28.39 then her/his pacesetter rating (Pr) would be:
Zero Par for a course is determined by the equation:
EXAMPLE: If the pacesetter skis the course in a time of 35.91 then Zp is:
