Registering for events this year, we will be using http://AdminSkiRacing.com. You should go to the web site and create a standard account. Once you create the account, you need to add yourself as a participant. When adding yourself as a participant, if you have a USSA number, create the account this way, otherwise use the FIS Member option and when asked for your FIS number, use your Driver's license, or FIS number if you have one.

Once you've created yourself as a participant, you can see all of our workshops by selecting Register, found at the top of the site. If you run into issues, you may contact AdminSkiRacing staff at (603) 818-8005. They will be staffing on the weekends once we get closer to the season, so the best time to reach them is standard business hours, or via email at webmaster@adminskiracing.com
