Age Grades

Open Skill based with no age restriction

Masters 40+ years on 1st January

By determing both the skiers/boarders ability and age division, individuals will only compete against competitors of a comparable level.

Open division is the only exception which races only within the A grade category.



From 2012, the formal seeding race will not be conducted. For new racers, it will be replaced with a self assessment and then an on snow assessment by the Race Committee. Racers will be graded accordingly. Racers who have attended the APWG in recent years will be graded on past performance.

Giant Slalom

giant slalom
The giant slalom is the first of the downhill races and the course is set to allow those people who can ski quick to go for it. The court layout configuration is comprised of double-gates (poles) with alternating red and blue marker flags suspended between them. This is the longest of the downhill events.


The slalom is similar in layout to the Giant Slalom except the course layout is configured using code spring-loaded gates (poles) to delineate the racing line. The overall course length is shorter than the Giant Slalom and the turn’s tighter, which ultimately slows the racers speed.

Boarder/ Skier Cross

The boarder/skier cross event is a series of races in groups of 4 that compete to the best at the finish line, after passing through a twisting course of turns, rollers and other manoeuvres where the first 2 finishers of each heat proceed to the next. However somtimes the four races don’t fit into the one part of the course so it’s not always a matter of skill and strength that gets you to the bottom first, but luck.
