Ski marking /equipment control (ski marking, logo/commercial marking check, transponder attachment) is required for all. This “station” should be set-up where the athletes' enter the final pre-start area.  For mass-start and pursuit races, ski marking/equipment control may be moved closer to or inside the pre-start area by the start if extra space is needed.

This “station” should be set-up where the athletes' enter the final pre-start area. For mass-start and pursuit races, ski marking/equipment control may be moved closer to or inside the pre-start area by the start if extra space is needed.

Ski marking can be done by using stamps or stickers that are marked or attached to the top of both skis. In all cases, the skier’s bib number must be written on the ski, stamp or sticker. For the Tour, a different color stamp, sticker or pen must be used for every Stage. It is important to use material and ink that is waterproof and do not disappear in wet or extra cold conditions. No commercial markings are allowed on stamp or stickers.

Due to the rush of skiers at the time of ski marking, it is important that enough people and equipment are planned and available for this function. Four ski-marking benches are normally sufficient, with at least two people working at each bench. The same number of people should be working with the transponder systems, such that no bottleneck is created.
