[edit] Part 3 – Open Questions

1. You challenge a competitor during Official Training on the day of competition because he is not wearing a bib. He says he has one but it he left it at his lodging. What do you do?

2. Official Training for a World Cup Aerials event is due to start in 5 minutes and you notice that there is no First Aid in attendance. What do you do?

3. What are the main purposes of the Team Captains’ meetings held each evening of a competition?

4. You arrive at the venue for a Dual Moguls competition and find the course partially set out but with the Air Bumps not yet in place. The course area measures up as follows:

Distance Gradient Width

Start area 10m 5° 18m

30m 23° 18m

10m 36° 18m

20m 30° 18m

20m 28° 18m

20m 24° 18m

20m 22° 18m

20m 21° 18m

20m 20° 18m

20m 19° 18m

Finish area 30m 5° 25m

What is the average gradient of this course?

What problems do you foresee with this course, and what approach would you take to address them?

5.The producer from the host TV broadcaster has a great idea to position a camera on a 20m boom next to the Finish line so that he can get dramatic action shots of skiers approaching from the second Air. How would the conversation go?

6. A fault with the electronic timing during one competitor’s run in the Ski Cross Qualifications leads to the recording of a backup time for that competitor. With 5 competitors still to run, The Chief of Scoring contacts you to say that he doesn’t believe that the backup time is correct. The Chief of Timing insists that it has been correctly derived from the secondary timing system. The Chief of Scoring points out that the secondary timing readings have been seriously out of step with the primary readings for most of the morning. The competitor’s coach comes over and enters the discussion. What do you do? What do you do if the matter is still unresolved when the last competitor in Qualifications has gone down?
