How Do I Become A USSA & Tri-State Member?
All the racers must join two different associations in order to compete in the Tri-State. They are the USSA (United State Ski Association) and Tri-State. The application forms on-line. Remember, the athlete must carry these association membership cards with them at all times.
Tri-State racers in classes U12 and above must register for each race through the AdminSkiRacing web site. Remember to register early enough to ensure entry.
USSA and Tri-State Memberships for all racers
All Tri-State racers must have valid USSA and Tri-State memberships.
Points And Start Orders
For the U16 and U19+ races, the start orders for each race are decided by the racer’s USSA points. This is a ranking system ranging from 0.00 to 990.00. A racer will start with 990.00 points. The points an athlete will receive for each individual race depends on the level of the racers completing the competitions as well as the athlete’s time for the race in comparison to the winner’s time. Subsequently, a racer’s two best results in the current season are averaged out in each of the four disciplines to become the basis for the future race rankings. These points are updated periodically.
For the U14/U12 races, the starting orders are rotated by seed groupings to give all racers equal opportunity to start early.
