FIS (U19 athletes and older only, yob 2003 and later) Registration Deadline AUGUST 15TH

If you are planning on skiing in FIS races this year and haven't registered yet, the FIS registration through USSA (the only way to do it) deadline is August 15th. After this deadline passes there is a steep late fee assigned to this membership. 

If you don't know if you should sign up for this, talk to your coaches. A discussion of what races you might attend this year should be happening now so you can decide if FIS is the way to go for you.

If you are not planning on skiing in any FIS Races and just want a USSA membership, then the USSA deadline is October 15th.

2019-2020 CR1 Registration and Fee Structure Changes

May 7, 2019


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.  

Below is the breakdown of costs.






AC U12 = Alpine Comp U12 & under





AC U14 = Alpine Competitor U14





AC U16 = Alpine Competitor U16 & Over







Thank you,

Central Division R1 Executive Board

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.
