FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup Points and Scoring System

Every season winner of the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup receives the crystal globe. The winners of every discipline (Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super G, Downhill, Parallel) get the “small crystal globe.” How FIS determine who is the overall and single disciplines winner? It is easy, and here are all the answers you have about awards, FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup Points, and the Scoring system.

The first thirty skiers of every slalom, giant slalom, super g, and downhill race that is part of the World Cup get points according to their finish position. The only exception is the parallel competition where just the first fifteen skiers get points to the World Cup ranking.

The alpine combined race is not part of the FIS World Cup anymore. Alpine combined races are organized just as part of the World Championships.

Points are awarded for every race in the World Cup calendar, the World Championship races (taking place every two years) are excluded from the FIS World Cup ranking.

Additional rules:

World Cup Finals: Only the first fifteen skiers in the race are awarded points (there are just 25 skiers starting at Finals).

Time difference: If a competitor’s time is more than 108% of the winning time, he/she is not awarded any points no matter what place he/she finishes.

Every race’s points are counted for the season, and who has the most points is the winner (of single discipline or overall) and gets the award (crystal globe).

The technical (Slalom, Giant Slalom, Parallel) and speed (Super G, Downhill) races are balanced through the season to give all skiers an equal chance for overall World Cup triumph. However, sometimes it is not possible because of some events’ cancelation due to the weather conditions during the season.
