Alpine Competition Officials Education Resources
SEASON 2022 AOEWG CLINICS
Welcome to the 2022 Season and the opportunity to serve as an alpine official. We greatly appreciate your time, support and leadership to make ski racing happen.
During the 2022 season we will continue to operate races and clinics under the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Covid 19 Guidelines. Please take the time now to download and read these documents and remember to check back often for updates as they are living documents.
This season we will be returning to exams for certifications. Exams are required for certification and must be administered in person by an approved proctor. Proven violation of this policy will negate the results of the exam and may result in sanction. We will have virtual options for the Alpine Review and Update, TD Workshop and Course Clinics may be presented virtually, and again exams must be in person with an approved exam proctor.
There will be many options within your area to attend clinics, or even across the nation in the virtual set up. Please reach out to your Alpine Officials chair to confirm your clinic schedule.
Thank you for your time and we wish you the best in your upcoming season. If you have questions please do not hesitate to reach out.
Following are study guides to help you prepare for the various alpine official's certification clinics. Study guides are not a replacement for actual clinic attendance but are provided to enhance your education. These documents have been updated for the 2022 season.

Updated Officials Manuals 2022 Season
The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Alpine Officials Education Working Group has assembled a comprehensive manual for alpine officials. This manual is a guide to race organization, the rules, and duties of officials, timing and calculations, and other subject areas important to alpine officials throughout the country.
It is intended to be as thorough as possible with updates and revisions produced as necessary. However, it is not meant to be a step-by-step ‘cookbook’ with definitive procedures for every race situation.
