Welcome to the official website for Central Division R1 (CR1) of the United States Ski & Snowboard. The Central Division consists of the following states: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota and Missouri. CR1 consists of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota; the other states listed above belong to CR2, CR3, and CR4.
CR1 plans and hosts races throughout the winter season to give our athletes opportunities to compete in Slalom, Giant Slalom, and Super G at all levels throughout our area, traditionally December through March.
Below is the schedule for this coming season. It is a PDF of an excel spreadsheet. If you have questions about it, please start with your coaches or program director. This calendar includes non-scored and scored in CR1, FIS in CR1 and Central, FIS in CO, U16 races in CO, and divisional and regional projects. The CR1 non-scored, scored, FIS, and Central FIS will be added to the Calendar page soon.
Based on weather predictions for Monday, Jan 15, at Buck Hill, CR1 has decided to postpone the Intergalactic Donut Cup World Championships to Feb 10, still at Buck Hill. We know this is not an ideal day for all our clubs, but felt this was a better option than canceling. Registration will open back up for those who hadn't planned on attending tomorrow, but can attend the 10th.
I will add those that paid late via credit card to the registration so you can see your name to know you are entered. If you are signed up and are unable to attend on the 10th, please let me know and I will refund your entries.
Remember this is a costume race so dress up as your favorite character you can ski race as.
All Athletes, Officials, and Coaches must have a valid United States Ski & Snowboard (USSS) membership. You can log-in to your account on usskiandsnowboard.org to register and/or renew your USSS membership for the upcoming 2023-2024 season.
CR1 membership will continue as it did last season, through USSS national registration and be noted in your cart before you check-out.
RACE REGISTRATION will be changing this year. We are going to use SKIREG.com to register for all our races.
More specific race day information will be posted each race week on the Race Day info section of this website.
Our calendar is posted above, and will be found on the calendar tab soon. The PDF will be dated, updated when appropriate for a go-to reference point.
Volunteering is an enjoyable and important part of our ski racing community.
Region 1 races are run by parent volunteers and coaches.
At least 1 parent / guardian is needed to volunteer at at least ½ of the races your athlete attends for the system to work because ski racing requires many volunteers.
Please signup early for volunteer positions so that we can plan races and avoid last minute staffing issues.
Here is the link to all information that coaches need for the Team Captains' Meetings. It will get you to a Google file that has a paper with the ZOOM link and files for each age group. In those files are athlete lists, race announcement, and medical plan. Everything for race day will be done through WhatsApp for FIS and Telegram for Scored and Non-Scored.
Meeting Schedule (all at 6:30 PM) Link to all meetings on the Board of Directors page (under Member Resources) on this website.
Please follow national, state, local, and US Ski and Snowboard regulations.
