These precisions have yet to be ratified by the FIS Council (November) - They are preliminary, but expect no further changes.

Of particular interest is the SL setting change to 30-35% of the Vertical, +or-3. This will also be adopted by USSA, as well as the changes in the Verts for SL and SG and the new SG setting requirements. Helmets are now required in all FIS and USSA alpine disciplines.

FIS results will be valid for 13 months, not 15 months. FIS Point Rules 4.2.3.

On a related note, the USSA ACR (Alpine Competition Rules) will be modified to reflect the numbering system of the FIS ICR. I.E: the SL section will be numbered 800 in both rule books.
