Ski Portillo Chile this Summer

You've seen Portillo on our bibs and on our trailers -- Now it's time to see Portillo in person! 


Portillo is a long-time proud sponsor of Region 1 racing, providing significant cash support each season. 


There is no better place to ski in our summers. In fact, several World Cup teams train there each season.  Please see the attachments; one provides an overview of the Portillo experience, and the other describes their summer race camps. 


Bill Guidera from Team Gilboa represents Portillo, and he will be at Afton this weekend for our races.  Feel free to find him with you questions, (he'll be in white pants and a black jacket). You can also contact Bill directly at and 952-826-9306.



Many thanks.

2017/18 Season

We are looking forward to the 2017 / 2018 season. Registration is open. USSA and FIS registration are open. Go to to register for USSA.

Your Region 1 board has been hard at work this summer on a number of initiatives. We are continuing to look at ways to expand Lunar cup and we formed a Race Day Improvement committee last summer.  This committee looked at all aspects of the race day, from the pre-planning of each race weekend through the posting of results. The intent is to improve the operations of running a race and we continue to strive to do better.

Lunar Cup Launch

Have Fun, Stay Local, Race!

Region 1 is continuing the Lunar Cup in 2017! Lunar Cup is a 4 race series in and around the Twin Cities area for athletes under the age of 12. 

The Lunar Cup is designed for newer racers that are looking to test their skills against other athletes in the Twin Cities Area, but do not want to commit to a full non-scored racing schedule.

It is open to any athlete, including those receiving instruction outside of a full USSA club program, e.g., traveling ski schools: Blizzard, Ski Jammers, Otto Hollaus, or D-Teams, or Independents participating in NASTAR racing and the like.

Lunar Cup is easy, 1-stop shopping. Simply sign up for Lunar Cup and show up to the races. Lunar Cup fee's include all registrations you need to race in the series. Registration will be open soon.
