[edit] 4507.8.3 Ski Cross Start Gate Standards

Hinged gates, each 100 cm wide and 40 cm in height.

There shall be 60 cm between the outside edges of each gate section. The height of the handles shall be 95 cm above the snow level and set parallel to the hinged gate. The size of each handle shall be 10 cm long with a width between 3 cm to 4 cm.

The width between the ends of each handle needs to be between 80 cm – 90 cm. Different positions for the handles should be available for children and junior competitors.

The starting surface of the gate must be covered with a protection for the skis. The gate must have sufficient weight to operate property.

The locking system should operate in such a way that the gates open out-ward, as least past 45 degrees, on operation of a single control mechanism. Mechanical controls are all preferred over electrical ones, for reasons of reliability and portability.

The ski cross gate opens outwards and moves from a vertical position, past horizontal position to a resting position at least 45 degree angle if not more.
