*SG Notes: With a foot of new snow on Friday forcing cancellation of the scheduled SG race run, the second training run from Thursday was declared as the Western Region championship SG. The second training run had been designated on Thursday as a conditional race, given the windy and snowy conditions already occurring. In the interests of safety so that competitors did not feel pressured to compete in the speed event under difficult conditions, however, the SG is not included in the combined scoring for the overall regional champion in each age class - only the GS and SL events will be scored. The SG is included in the Speed Series results as originally planned.

Weekend schedule changes: The original event schedule of GS on Saturday followed by SL on Sunday was swapped to run SL on Saturday in order to have the best conditions for the respective disciplines following the Thu/Fri snowfall.

SL results correction: The A/B SL results were initially posted on Saturday evening with an arror in M07. Corrected results and combined rankings were posted Sunday to record DSQ for V. Roy.

Additional Scoring Reports (Just for Fun!)

Additional "just for fun" scoring reports will be posted within the next day, with additional scoring rankings allowing competitors to compare their performances across different groups of competitors in addition to the usual rankings by time for their age class.

The Additional Reports section includes alternative rankings and groupings of the results that give competitors additional ways to compare themselves with other racers outside their immediate age class. Rankings organized by national group or gender or in the overall rankings of all competitors who were on the same course allows racers to see how they compare against different sets of competitors.
