Host Clubs –  Host clubs receive a portion of the race registration fees. Host clubs use these funds toward race weekend expenses as well as serve as a fund raiser. If you are so moved to join clubs or make a contribution to a club outside of your home club, please visit these websites of each host club for the 2018-19 season.

Thanks to all of the clubs for participating and maintaining trails that allow skiers the chance to race on home courses. It is common practice for skiers to purchase trail passes when they visit Nordic ski centers in the Lower 48. We are fortunate that our state clubs have found success with strong local membership participation and we all still enjoy the benefits of world-class trails.
