Congratulations, you have $100,000 fantasy dollars! You may use this money to buy athletes for your fantasy team. You may not select more than 8 athletes of each gender for your team.
Each athlete’s cost will change throughout the season. If an athlete’s value increases while he or she is on your team, you may keep the athlete on your team without paying the new higher price. However, when you sell an athlete, you will only receive the fantasy dollars which you paid for the athlete, not the athlete’s current price. If you choose to repurchase the athlete, you will have to pay the new price. If an athlete’s value drops, you may sell the athlete for your purchase price and rebuy the athlete for the new lower price. In this way, it is impossible to ever have more than $100,000 fantasy dollars, but the value of the athletes on your team may at times exceed $100,000.
Team slection closes the evening before each weekend (at 11:59pm EST), and before each race of the Olympics.
A mildly detailed calendar of when team selection opens & closes is included

Not all athletes will compete in all races even in a given weekend-- choose wisely! It is up to you to select athletes that will be competing.
Prize details coming soon
If there is a tie in a prize competition, the prize receiver will be selected at random from the winners.
In layman's terms, the top 15 skiers in each race score the best points. Points are awarded down to 30th place.
1st scores 100 points, 2nd 80 points, 3rd 60 points... 10th 26 points, 15th 16 points, 20th 11 points,
30th 1 point.
The full scoring rules are outlined below:
- Points for each athlete in individual races are equivalent to World Cup Points
as outlined by FIS.
Bonus points, including Bonus World Cup Points from mass start races and from the end of stage races, will be
awarded to an athlete if, and only if, FIS counts the points towards the overall World Cup standing.
- For relays and team sprints, fantasy points are awarded to every skier on every team in the top 30. The points
an athlete receives are equal to the number of Nations Cup points their team would score if all finishing teams
scored points, divided by the number of athletes on the team (this differs from FIS scoring where only one team
per country can receive Nations Cup points).
- Points are all awarded on a per race basis; thus, if an athlete starts a Tour but does not finish, they receive
all the points they earned up until they dropped out.
- The top 30 finishers from each Tour
will be awarded bonus points in accordance with the FIS rules, and as mentioned above. This compensates for the
fact that each individual stage is scored out of half as many points as a regular World Cup race.
- The Olympics will be scored as normal races, but will be a standalone competition-- they will not
factor into the overall rankings. This is in following with FIS' stance that the Olympics do not
factor into the overall World Cup rankings for athletes.
- Points will be updated each day that there is a race.
- You can always leave and rejoin leagues; your score within the league is the same as your total score in the
overall competition, no matter when you join.
