Winter '10 / '11 - FINAL Standings

After eight snow storms...the snowfall forecasting season for the Winter of '10 / '11 comes to a close.


Under the 'two-thirds' rule...the best 'two out of three' Z-scores are used to compute the final standings. After Snow Storm #8...your top six Z-scores were used to calculate these standings. Data used to compute the standings are posted at the Contest web site here.

Z-scores are used to standardize / normalize forecast errors for each snow storm so at the end of the season...the 'equalized' scores can be averaged.
