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.   

Team Captains' Meetings

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.


2022-2023 Season


All Athletes, Officials, and Coaches must have a valid United States Ski & Snowboard (USSS) membership.  You can log-in to your MyUSSA account to register and/or renew your USSS membership for the upcoming 2022-2023 season.

CR1 registration 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 through our MyUSSA portal throughout the season, with more race day information posted on the Race info section of this website.


Our calendar is posted below, and can be found on the calendar tab as well.  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.

Learn more on our volunteer page now.
