Each level of membership brings its own set of benefits. To be a Qualifying Race, you must meet certain criteria and agree to a set of common rules. Associate Races will be given more leeway in terms of criteria but will still reap benefits of membership.
If a race is cancelled due to lack of snow or another act of nature, SKIJOR USA will refund the race's money. The race may, however, elect to carry the fee over to the following season. Alternatively, the race may apply their fee to another race in their region or to the National Championship to assist with expenses.
