As the National Governing Body for Olympic skiing and snowboarding, the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) is responsible for setting the rules and regulations governing those sports in the USA. In this section, you'll find links to rules at different levels ranging from development races to the Olympic Winter Games. 

Rules help determine the path to achieving athletic success. Educating yourself on the rules will help ensure a positive sport experience.

For all USSA rules please review the 2016-17 Competition Guide.
