1.1 Medical Services Required from Event Organisers

The health and safety of all those involved in a ski, snowboard or freestyle competition is a primary concern of all event Organisers. This includes the competitors as well as volunteers, course workers and spectators.

The specific composition of the medical support system is dependent on several variables:

  • The estimated number of competitors, support staff and spectators
  • The scope of responsibility for the Event Medical Organisation (competitors, support staff, spectators) should also be determined.

The Organiser / Event Medical Director must confirm with the race director or technical delegate that the required rescue facilities are in place before starting the official training or competition. In the event of an incident, the back up plan must be in place before recommencing the official training or competition.
