Racing Licence Tips:
- All skiers competing in the National Championships are required to have a current CCC Racing Licence.
- Midget-age and older skiers planning to compete in the BC Cup Series, Western Canadian Championships or Nor Ams should purchase a CCC Racing Licence.
- Skiers are encouraged to purchase a licence before the start of the season, so that the results of all the sanctioned races they compete in this season will be reflected on the Canada Points List (CPL). The CPL is used for provincial and national team selections, eligibility for CSC PacificSport Athlete Carding, etc.

Skiers competing in the Midget age class and below, who are members in good standing with a CCC/CCBC club, do not require a day licence.
