High Fluoro wax rule

The National Interschools Committee have adopted a rule banning High Fluoro wax and Fluorocarbon liquid sprays at all ski and snowboard Interschools events. The contributing factors to this rule coming into place are:

  • Recommendation from the Ski and Snowboard Australia Alpine Committee
  • Desire to create a more even playing field in an entry level event such as Interschools
  • FIS are moving to a ban on High Fluoro wax in the 2020 season
  • North American and European countries shift away from High Fluoro wax at Junior levels
  • Minimise the possible environmental and health impact of using High Fluoro wax 

While the rule will be based on an honour system and peer group review, Event Organisers reserve the right to inspect or test waxing practices in the interest of fairness. 

Whilst traces of High Fluoro wax may exist on skis from a previous event deliberate Hi Fluoro waxing the night prior or on the day of the event is prohibited. Reports from local tuning shops will also be sought.

The National Interschools Committee has every confidence that participating schools, parents and competitors will respect this new rule.

Complete stop race rule

Following similar rule directions around the world at Junior Alpine Ski Racing the complete stop rule has been implemented at the Victorian and Australian Interschools in 2019.

7.8 Disqualifications
A racer abandons if he or she comes to a complete stop on the course. The racer must exit to the side of the course as soon as possible to avoid interfering with the next racers run. They will
record a DNF for that run.

Clarifications:

  • A racer if impeded by a course worker, another skier or a gate down etc they may pull off to the side of the course, not go through the finish and request a re-run.
  • If a competitor misses a gate and does not come to a complete stop can skate up and around the missed gate and continue.
  • In the event of a competitor losing a ski without coming to a complete the competitor may choose to continue on one ski.

2019 Australian Interschools Rules

The 2019 Australian Interschools will be run under the Victorian Interschools rules. Key changes to the rules are

  • Best of two run format for Moguls at the Nationals.
  • No race suits in Div 5 or 6
  • No High Fluoro wax rule
  • A racer abandons if he or she comes to a complete stop on the course. The racer must exit to the side of the course as soon as possible to avoid interfering with the next racers run. They will record a DNF for that run.

2019 Multiclass Nationals event

The 2019 Multiclass Nationals event will be held on Friday the 6th of September at Mt Buller. Participants in the 2019 Victorian and NSW Multiclass events are invited to take part in this great event. For further information please email info@vicinterschools.com.au .
