COVID-19 Information & Resources
U.S. Ski & Snowboard is committed to assisting its members, clubs and volunteers in running a healthy, safe and successful 2020-21 competition season. The U.S. Ski & Snowboard COVID-19 Task Force today released U.S. Ski & Snowboard COVID-19 Domestic Competitions Guidance (v1.1 updated 8/29/20).
All U.S. Ski & Snowboard members and participants are expected to follow all local, state and federal public health mandates during competition participation. Everyone’s compliance and diligence are required in order to help minimize risk in the competitive environment and the ability to run a 2020-21 competitive season. Compliance with mandates and diligence in hosting events gives everyone the best opportunity to avoid cancellations.
This guidance document (Guidance) on domestic competition hosting considerations during the COVID-19 pandemic has been developed by U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s COVID-19 Task Force. This Guidance is based on U.S. Ski & Snowboard best practices and includes portions of specific content from the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
This Guidance is designed to guide the planning of all U.S. Ski & Snowboard sanctioned domestic competitions and does not account for sport-specific protocols. Sport-specific protocols will be released separately and in a timely manner. As more information becomes available concerning competition and COVID-19, this Guidance will be updated as appropriate, and new version(s) released to the U.S. Ski & Snowboard membership and competition organizers.
