U.S. Ski & Snowboard Member Services Knowledge Base

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.
