[edit] Ski suits (Ski Cross)

Ski suits must be two pieces; pants and a separate top. Suits worn in the Alpine events of Downhill (DH), Super-G (SG), Giant Slalom (GS), Slalom (SL), and Speed Skiing are not allowed.

Suit base material shall be textile fabrics excluding rubber, neoprene, leather or vinyl like materials or fabrics. Patches of different material are allowed provided that textile fabrics shall remain, in any event, predominant.

Non-protruding body protection and padding is recommended.

Protection equipment including back protector or any other padding or body amour must be worn on the body and separate from the ski suit (outer wear). Protection and padding must not be built into the ski suit or attached to the ski suit by a zipper, Velcro or any other means. Fastening devices such as elastic straps, zippers, nylon straps, buttons, snaps, velcro, one or 2 sided tape, or any other methods shall not be used to tighten the suit material closer to the body or prevent the natural fall of the clothing.

The gap in the material must be a minimum of 80mm, measured everywhere around the circumference of the, of each leg from the mid thigh to the top of the ski boot and 60 mm everywhere around the elbow and the bicep.

[edit] Ski Suit Measurement Method

Body position and stance for taking measurements: Any athlete shall appear in full race wear with ski boots on. They shall stand with feet shoulder-width apart, in an upright standing position with arms relaxed at the sides, and the legs relaxed forward into the support of the cuffs of their boots. (“full race wear” includes all under layers and padding that is worn while competing.)

The measurement shall take place before or after each qualification run, as decided by the Jury and announced at the First Team Captains Meeting. The measurement shall take place after each heat in the Final by first measuring each eliminated competitor prior to exiting the finish area. All competitors in the Final and Small Final heats will be measured prior to exiting the finish area. The material gap shall be found everywhere at the measuring control points, without stretching or pulling the fabric apart from the underwear.

The measurement tool shall be certified through the FIS Office.

Standardized measuring control points:
