Points and Rankings

U.S. Ski & Snowboard Snowboard competitor members receive national points for each scored competition in which they finish without disqualification.  Competitors begin their points profile with 0.00 points and may increase these points to a maximum of 1000.00.  Points are used to rank competitors nationally on the Snowboard National Ranking List.

The list provides competition organizers with the data to establish a start order for competitions.  This also allows competitors to compare their performance against the performance of riders in other parts of the country whom they may not compete against.

The Snowboarding National Ranking List is based on a "place-points" scale.  This simply means that for every scored competition sanctioned through U.S. Ski & Snowboard, points are awarded from 1st place to a maximum of 100th place.

The exact calculations of the points awarded to each finish place is determined by the competition level, and the average points of the best five riders starting the event.  Once the competition level and average points have been determined the event is the applied to the appropriate points scale.  For more information on how points are calculated, see Chapter 2 of your U.S. Ski &  Snowboard Competition Guide.
