Qualification: Advancement to Regionals is based on the Ranking List. All skiers ranked Level 6 in any event or overall as of August 18, 2022 qualify for Regionals.
At the Cut Off Date the Ranking List Average of the last ranked skier in each division in slalom, tricks, jump and overall will be established as the Cut Off Average (COA) for that division.

Last Chance Qualification: After the Cut Off Date any skiers not qualified via the Ranking List may still qualify for Regionals through 3 last chance qualifying methods (LCQs):
1. Increases your average equal to or above the COA any time after the Cut Off Date.
2. Record a score equal to or above the COA at any tournament class (C) or above after the Cut Off Date.
3. Place in the top 3 at your State Tournament.
