HillSize (HS) – distance between take-off and landing field where the gradient is equal to 32.5° (see: L-point on the image below)
K-point (calculation line or calculation point) – Skiers are awarded 60 points if they land on the K Line. Skiers not landing on the K Line receive or lose points for every metre (3 ft) they miss the mark by, depending on if they surpass it or fall short, respectively. The value of a meter is determined from the size of the hill.
How K-point and HillSize are calculated, see the image below
