Our club does not have insurance, can we still be a U.S. Ski & Snowboard member club?

The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Board of Directors passed Club Minimum Standards to be in effect beginning the 2017-18 season. Compliance is mandatory. 

Why does my club need insurance?

If an organization under the U.S. Ski & Snowboard umbrella is not insured, the club’s assets are in jeopardy as are U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s.  In addition, in order to continue appropriate business relationships with our host venues, having insurance while operating on ski area venues is appropriate.  U.S. Ski & Snowboard has provided a very cost effective insurance mechanism to insure club risk.  Clubs are free to seek their own coverage as well.  The only requirement is that it meets U.S. Ski & Snowboard’s coverage standards.

The Club Liability Insurance Program (CLIP) is designed for clubs who are unable to obtain insurance or obtain it at a reasonable price. Going forward you may opt in to the CLIP program or secure other similar coverage. CLIP pricing may be found by clicking here and varies upon sport and number of club members.

Please use the following link for more information regarding the CLIP program: https://buckner.com/us-ski-and-snowboard/

 

U.S. Ski & Snowboard clubs that are owned or operated by a parent entity (from which insurance may be obtained) such as resort competition centers, resort-run clubs and universities, municipalities are not eligible for CLIP.

The CLIP Club Insurance application is subject to review and approval by membership services.  The submission of this application does not obligate U.S. Ski & Snowboard to accept the application or to issue a policy.  The applicant declares to the best of their knowledge and belief, after reasonable inquiry, the statements made in the application and any attachments or information submitted with the application, are true and complete.

 

U.S. Ski & Snowboard reserves the right to deny coverage under the CLIP program to any club after reviewing the application and making a risk assessment/management decision based on several factors including but not limited to the club meeting minimum standards, prior claims, and risk history.  Coverage will not be denied on the basis of race, gender and gender identity, color, sexual orientation, or religion.
