SeedingSeed list publication, rules and regulations for seeding events.

BASS (British Alpine Seeding System)

Publication and cut-off dates

The intended publication dates and cut-off dates for submission of official results for BASS lists are shown below. Lists will be published monthly during the season, coinciding with the publication of FIS lists. FIS lists are published on a Tuesday making them available for input into the next BASS list which will then be published on Wednesday. Both BASS and FIS lists then become valid from Thursday.

The only exception to this at present is that BASS list 6 is not valid until Friday to avoid changing list between day 1 and day 2 of the Inter Schools Spring Series.

F values for the 2016-17 winter season are as follows:

SL 720

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!

Contacts

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

David Manns, National Seeder.

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.
