From the MPA Alpine Ski Rule Book
Section 10 - Scoring in the Alpine events is by finish points assigned to places with 200 finish points to
the first-place finisher, 199 to second place, continuing with one point lower for each place; The highest
team score is the winning team. In the Alpine championship, team scores from both days will be added
together for the overall team score that will determine the Alpine state champion.
Section 11 - A team score is determined by adding up the finish points of the team's first four finishers.
In the event of a tie, racers receive finish points equal to the tying place. (Example: If there is a tie for
third, both skiers are awarded 198 finish points, there would be no fourth place, and the next place
would be fifth.) The 5th and 6th finishers for each team do not score finish points, but they displace
points for scorers from other teams. All teams with at least one skier finishing at least one of the alpine
races will earn a team score. The team score for a team with fewer than four finishers will be the sum of
the finish points for those that finish in each race. There are no longer any ghost scores in the team scoring.
