How Seeding Works

Results

Results from all 'approved' calendar races (U14 age group and upwards) are collated and processed at intervals during the season to produce the Seed Lists, which are then published in various formats. Although often used to measure individual performance, Seed Lists are officially used to check eligibility against race entry criteria, and to determine race start order.

Registration

To be included in the seeding system, you need to be registered with one of the registration bodies. For anyone other than services personnel, this means one of Snowsports England, Wales or Scotland.

Please note: if you change registration body between seasons, for example registering with Snowsport Scotland when you have previously been registered with England, you need to inform us via email at seeding@gbski.com so that your points can be transferred across to your new registration number. It may not happen automatically!

Clubs

Some competitions include a 'team' element that is based on published Club affiliation. Each competitor can list one home (UK) club for use in artificial slope (BARTS) competitions and one overseas (Alpine) club for use in outdoor snow (BASS) competitions.

Each of these competitions has regulations that specify which seed list they use for club. In this situation, the clubs listed on the Excel and Ski Pro editions of that seed list are used, not the club listed in the 'live' online list. This is because the live list links directly to each competitor record in the database, the details of which may have changed since the seed list was published.

Submitting Results

Race results for BARTS seeding can only be accepted from SkiPro software (either the original event files or preferably a ".spro" backup).

Race results for BASS seeding are preferred in SkiPro format as this contains all relevant information, although submission using FIS XML format is also possible. Where no SkiPro files are available for FIS races, for example if Timing & Calcs is run by resort staff using other software, results will be acquired directly from the FIS web site.

If you find any issues with seed lists, please contact seeding@gbski.com straight away.
