The US Ski Mountaineering Association has released updates on its events.
National Cup Series:
The National Cup Series will consist of a small subset of races that are meant to showcase the sport and promote its growth. The concept is to attract as many participants as possible to compete in each of the series races in an attempt to earn the top ranking of combined race performances. Check out the schedule here!
You can find the full race calendar on the website and see USSMA Sanctioned and non-sanctioned races. If you would like to have something added to the calendar, please email email@example.com.
National Referee Training:
For all persons wishing to become a National Referee, we will be holding a training coincident with the A Basin race. Dates will be Dec 10, 11 and 12. The training will include on snow, classroom and practical application during the race. Plan for a full schedule those three days. The course will be free but we will ask for a commitment, as part of National Referee group, to assist with coverage at USA Skimo Cup Series races. This means we will ask for you to attend and referee a cup race. A stipend will be provided to help cover your costs. Any person who is interested please let firstname.lastname@example.org know as soon as possible. Class size will be limited.
