US Masters ACE Scoring

The US Alpine Masters ACE Scoring (Alpine Competition Event Scoring - ACES) software is provided for use by US masters race organizers and US masters divisions to support race results reporting and provide event/series/season scoring for US alpine masters ski competitions.

ACE Scoring supports race standings and event/series scoring in any of several different masters age class systems:

Race results reporting features computing standings in a variety of interesting organizations (by age class, by gender, overall), with race points calculated appropriately for the competitor groupings. Event scoring can be done using the results of multiple races (e.g., a multi-discipline event such as a regional or national championship or over the course of an entire season for a division calendar). Event scoring can use any of a number of scoring formulas based on time, race points, or world cup points scoring systems.

Visit the Downloads page for installation instructions and links to downloads the ACES software and scoring data. The Documentation page includes a complete online copy of the ACES documentation which is installed with software, including a description of the various scoring formulas supported by the software and the data interchange formats which can be used to load race data into scoring system.
