2022 registration commences – FIS List 1 registration deadline is June 28

2022 registration commences – FIS List 1 registration deadline is June 28

The 2022 registration season began on June 1st.

All Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance and Sport Accident Insurance Policy (SAIP) purchased during the 2020/2021 season will expire as of July 1st, 2021. Because of this all members participating in training or other club activities after June of this year must be renewed for the 2022 season to be covered by the CGL or SAIP insurances.

Although we have not yet received final category costs from Alpine Canada Alpin, we have been told to expect no changes to any category or insurance cost from the 2021 season.

FIS Registrants:

If you would like to make the publication date for list #1 you must be registered with BC Alpine via your club no later than end of day June 27, 2021.  

Registrations will of course be accepted after this time however list #2 will not be published until mid-August. This means any requests to race during the summer (southern hemisphere events) where the racer would like to have their points available would require immediate points activation at an additional cost if you are not in before the list #1 deadline.

Current year FIS documents are available to download via: https://bcalpine.com/files/Registration_Files/FIS_Registration/ 

Please remember that the FIS Medical Evaluation requires a physical exam so make sure your athletes book an appointment with their medical professional to get this document completed!

Another important deadline: Canada West Ski Area Association has set an August 11th deadline to be registered in FIS to be eligible for a CWSAA All Areas Pass card.

Have any questions or concerns regarding registration or insurance?

Please contact Keven Dubinsky at our offices directly via kevend@bcalpine.com or 604-678-3074.

STEP 1: Digital Waiver – LINK

CWSAA is excited to be partnering with 1Risk again on the digital waiver for the upcoming 2020-21 season.

Tips on filling out the digital waiver:

The digital form is best filled out on a hand held device.  If using a PC to fill out the form, the web browser must be either Chrome or Fire Fox.  Not adaptable with Internet Explorer.

With the digital form, it’s assuming you are of legal age or the parent/guardian signing on behalf of the minor.  

The first part of the form is where the legal age athlete or parent/guardian must initial that they have read the following:
(The signee can either use their finger to initial or the mouse cursor if using a PC.  Can not type in their initials.)

  • Information on Competitor Pass Program & Alpine Responsibility Code
  • Assumption of Risks
  • Release of Liability, Waiver of Claims and Assumption of Risks Agreement 
  • Ski Area Operator Day Pass Exclusion of Liability
  • Waiver Progress Information:  this is where the legal age athlete or parent/guardian enter in their personal information
    • at the bottom of the page, please remember to select one of the following options:
      • I am an Adult with no minors to sign for
      • I am an Adult that will be participating and have Minors to sign for
      • I am an Adult Guardian (not participating) signing for minors 
        • be redirected to fill in information for a minor

STEP 2: Photo Upload – LINK

Please remember that CWSAA requires that you filling your affiliation as “BC Alpine” not your ski club as they categorize the passes by provincial governing body and do not know which one each club belongs to. This will help sort all the photos more efficiently and lead to less delays that may occur if your club name is used.

Reminder – Photos must meet the following guidelines:

  • Photos must be in a jpeg format
  • Photos must be taken against a plain white or lightly coloured background
  • The photo must be taken 5 to 6 feet from the person
  • The lighting must be uniform to avoid shadows across the face
  • No hats or sunglasses/goggles
  • The photos must show a full front view of the face and top of the shoulders squared to the camera
