USSMA Sanctioning

The 2018 Audi Power of Four Ski Mountaineering race will be officially sanctioned by the United States Ski Mountaineering Assosciation (USSMA). An Elite division has been added to the full course and will allow USSMA members to collect points as part of the series. All racers interested in competing in the Elite division are required to have a current USSMA membership. Racers in the Sport or Rec divisions do not need memberships.

An annual USSMA membership license is available for purchase online for $40. Once you have purchased the membership you will be provided a license number that will be required for registration of USSMA sanctioned races. As a part of the membership you will accumulate points for the national rankings determined by USSMA sanctioned races. All USSMA sanctioned races are included in the points series, in which licensed participants can earn points based on their finishing position. Ongoing points are accumulated and presented in a national points series ranking publication (updated monthly during the race season).
