The course will be groomed every morning during the racing window.

SAFETY
  • Participants are requested to avoid skiing in packs with other skiers or knowingly coordinating their ski race times with other race participants.
  • Additionally, KSC is recommending that participants wear a face covering/ buff that can be engaged when passing other skiers.
  • Let's make it a fun and safe event for all participants.

Kongsberger Ski Club is following current state and county public health guidelines related to COVID-19 for this event. However, risk of COVID-19 exposure still exists. Your participation in this event is entirely voluntary and all participants assume the risk of exposure, which KSC cannot guarantee against. As such, KSC is not responsible for any possible COVID-19 exposure.

Timing Instructions

Preferred timing: This is the simplest process for skiers
Timing will be managed by each racer's smart phone through the use of the Webscorer app--the racer will scan the START QR code to begin the race, and scan the FINISH QR code at completion of the race.
• Download the free Webscorer app.
• Sign into the app by using the same email address with which you created your account.
• Open the app:
  -Tap 'race with self-timing'
  -Tap 'my upcoming races'
  -Tap the race that you are going to be doing
• Scan the START QR code to begin your race.
• Scan the FINISH QR code to end your race.
• The START and FINISH QR codes are located at the timing shed in the ski stadium.
Timing option #2: (only if you cannot use the preferred timing method)
You can time yourself with a stopwatch, GPS watch, etc. After your race, you will be required to enter time stamps in your Webscorer app/ account so that your finish time can be entered by KSC. THIS TASK MUST BE COMPLETED ON THE DAY OF YOUR RACE.
Download the free Webscorer app onto your computer or smart device.
Login with your information that you used for your race at registration. Parents, if you have registered more than one child, that means that you have to login with each child's login information.
This is how you will enter fake time stamps into the skier's Webscorer account so that the time can be edited by the Kongsberger Ski Club timing crew:
1. Tap 'Race with self-timing'
2. Tap 'My upcoming races'
3. Tap the virtual race for which you need to enter a time
4. Tap 'Scan code for start'
5. Tap 'Record time without code'
6. Tap 'Scan code for finish'
7. Tap 'Record time without code'
8. Send your time/ race details/ GPS screenshot if you have one to harperaugustina@gmail.com.
We are not recording individual laps for these races.
The organizer will be reviewing all edited race times.

Please keep things fair. At its core, a virtually timed race operates on an honor system. Follow the race course, do not take shortcuts, and please do not have somebody else capture your race times for you. Yes, scanning a QR code with a phone is slower than an automatically scanned chip or having somebody else capture your times for you, but luckily this task will be the same for all the racers.
