Women’s race is starting
The attached calendar is a preliminary calendar for this coming season. It is subject to change due to weather, COVID restrictions from the State of Minnesota, the local county and city, the MN Ski Areas Association, the ski area hosting us, US Ski and Snowboard, Central Division, and CR1. CR1 Board of Directors is doing everything in our power to set up a user friendly calendar that has enough dates for our athletes to complete throughout the season as allowed, but we are also trying to anticipate any issues that may arise mid-season.
US Ski and Snowboard just published and sent to members guidelines for COVID preparedness. It is posted on their website also. Please read this and make yourself aware of the guidelines to help all of us move and compete through this time in our country. CR1 Board will do everything in its power to keep our members as up to date as possible.
Registration on US Ski and Snowboard for the 2020-2021 season is open and will start assessing late fees on October 15th 2020. Central R1 registration will continue as it did last season, through USS&S national registration. Our PRELIMINARY calendar is posted above and race registration will open in November.
All races have a registration deadlines of Tuesday and Thursday of the week that the specific race is being held. Example: Spirit Mtn 1/2-3/2021 has a Tuesday on time registration deadline of 12/29 and a Thursday late fee deadline of 12/31.
On Tuesday at midnight the regular entry fee price will change to a late fee. The online late fee is $10/day.
On Thursday the online registration will close completely. The only way to register then is via email through email@example.com by Friday at noon. This has a late fee of $20/day.
There will not be any onsite entries accepted.

Dear Central Division Region 1 Member and Parents,
We wanted to let the parents and athletes know about a change in our fee structure for Central Division and its Regions. CR 1, 2, 3, and 4 jointly decided, after a year of work, to have our National, Divisional and Regional fees collected at one time through the national registration process at the US Ski and Snowboard, your MYUSSA account. We will no longer be registering or paying through this website.
This change will affect all athletes from U8 through Seniors, including college.
The request that a “one-stop shop” for all fees and registrations for the Division and the Regions came from parents that wanted to streamline our registration process, instead of having to do it twice. Along with this, it will, hopefully, alleviate some confusion as to what has been paid and what hasn’t as we enter a new ski season. This change will make it so there is no chance that any of the Regional fees will be missed by athletes and cause issues at races.
Moving our registrations and fees under US Ski and Snowboard will makes our deadlines the same as theirs. U19 and older athletes that plan to participate in FIS (an additional cost not noted in the table below) must be paid by August 15, 2019 to avoid late fees. All other athletes must be paid by October 15, 2019 to avoid late fees. If you have questions about whether you should sign up for FIS or not, talk to your coaches.
