WORLD RANKING LIST DESCRIPTION

The World Ranking List is a list of the best men and women skiers in each event ranked by performance.
A Junior Ranking List is also produced for skiers meeting the Junior age criteria and based on skiing under Junior Rules.
An Under 21 Ranking List is also produced for skiers meeting the Under 21 age criteria and based on skiing under Open rules.
35+, 45+ and 55+ lists are also produced for skiers meeting the age criteria and based on skiing the appropriate age division rules.

The ranking is based on the average of each skiers’ two (2) best scores from two (2) separate tournaments and two (2) separate sites. Only one score in each event is considered from each tournament.

Each IWWF Federation sanctions Record Capability or World Standings List tournaments from which the performances are taken. Performances are taken from scorebooks and submitted by the sanctioning Federation or Confederation. Any trick score over 11,000 points must be performed in an Record Capability (RC) tournament to be qualified for the Ranking List.

If a skier records only one qualifying performance, he/she will not be eligible for the list.
 
Ties on the ranking list will be broken by taking the highest score first to break the tie, then backed up by the second score, then the third score and so on.

If a performance in an Ranking List tournament exceeds the current World Record, it will be placed on the ranking list as one increment below the current record. If a record score is made in an Record Capability tournament, but is subsequentially rejected then the corrected score shall be used.

A separate ranking list overall will be calculated on the basis of fixed scores in each event on a tournament by tournament basis. This means that an overall score can only be achieved for the list by having an overall performance at a tournament. Event scores from multiple tournaments will not be combined to calculate an overall score. An overall score shall be from a single round of a tournament. The rounds of a tournament shall be set by the organizers and are NOT based on the first time a skier skis in a multi round tournament.
