2015-2016 USSMA Licensing Requirements

Once again we will be issuing licenses to racers this year.  The license is used to identify you as a racer and will be required on registrations for events if you are in the race/elite category.  If you plan to participate in the race division, we ask that you please register for a license.  If you participate in the rec division, a license is not required but recommended.  If you registered for a license last year, please simply email membership(at)ussma.org with your name and I will issue a new license (same license number).  If your email has changed, please also include this new information.  If you have not previously registered for a license, please fill out this form and email it to the email address in the form and we will issue you a license.



As part of the process of phasing licenses in, once again licenses this year will be offered without cost.  However, the USSMA as an organization relies on support from the community, and as part of that we are asking you to donate to the USSMA in lieu of a required license fee.  Your donation to the USSMA goes to providing support at the national and local level for the sport of ski mountaineering, building new events, and working to bring more attention to the sport. Every dollar counts so please help the USSMA by donating!
