FIS Points Extension
Traditionally, FIS points earned by a competitor are valid for 365 days. An athlete’s FIS point ranking is based on the average of their best five results during that 365-day period. If an athlete doesn’t compete in a FIS competition for more than one year, the athlete will lose those FIS points. Due to concerns about event cancelation resulting from the pandemic, FIS has extended the FIS point calculation period back to May 13, 2019. This means any FIS points earned from May 13, 2019 until the end of the 2021 winter season will count toward an athlete’s FIS point ranking. An athlete entering the 2020-2021 season with FIS points will not lose their points if they are unable to participate in any FIS sanctioned competitions.
