The competitors are allowed to inspect the course by slowly sliding down through or alongside the course.
Inspection times are at the discretion of the Jury but should be a minimum of 15 minutes. All competitors are re-quired to complete at least one inspection run prior to training. Competitors must visibly wear their bibs and their helmets.
At least one Official training run prior to the actual competition is mandatory for each site – normally the training runs should be 1 – 2 hours in length and should be held the day before the actual competition takes place (under certain mitigating circumstances the Jury may decide other possibilities)
