Welcome to Central Region 1 of the United States Ski and Snowboard Association! Our Region is comprised of all of Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Iowa west of route 63. Region 1 alpine athletes begin at local USSA races by age group - some as young as six years old - then racers advance by age to divisional and regional level races. Qualified U21 & U18 class racers advance to our MidAmerica Series in Central with selections from there to U18 National Championships, NorAms, the U.S. Alpine Championships, the World Cup and ultimately the Olympics!
It is possible to begin racing in our local USSA races and move up the pathway to the U.S. Ski Team.
