Ah rules. The backbone of sports, and the bible for referees. Love or hate them, sports would fail to function and ensure reputable results in their absence. Ski racing is no different from any other sport, as there are superfluous rules concerning the regimens of competition, equipment types and standards, and the expectations of competition day. 

Because the governing bodies in ski racing have taken extensive time to lay out their rules of competition, we have directed you to the links below for any rule you may (or may not) want to know about ski racing.
