Monday August 22nd, 2016

Corinth, NY - The United States Snowshoe Association would like to announce the introduction of a new level of   membership for the 2016-2017 season. A new “Supporter” level of membership is now available for an annual             membership fee of $20.  The USSSA has enjoyed excellent membership over the years. But, sometimes we have enthusiasts who simply want to “support” the work the USSSA is doing to promote outdoor winter endurance sports and safety. Perhaps, for them, a “full” membership isn’t needed. So, the “supporter” membership is an affordable alternative that still provides access for the member to outstanding discounts and special offerings from many of the USSSA’s sponsors and partners, including; The Rudy Project and various snowshoe manufacturers and retailers.

FULL” USSSA membership is required to be eligible to compete in the USSSA’s annual National Snowshoe Championship event. Full membership costs $30/year. The 2017 National Snowshoe Championships will take place at the Mount Bachelor Nordic Center just outside of Bend OR next March 24th-26th, 2017. “FULL” membership benefits also include; 1) a voice in the future of recreational and competitive snowshoeing in the US, 2) an annual membership card, 3) first time members receive a collectible USSSA patch,  4) a one year subscription to Trail Runner Magazine, 5) as stated previously, the opportunity to compete in the annual US National Snowshoe Championships, 6) special offers and discounts from the USSSA’s many sponsors and partners and 7) opportunities to travel to major domestic and international snowshoe events as part of Team USA!

The new “SUPPORTER” level of membership, at $20/year, will provide the snowshoe enthusiast with the following benefits; 1) A collectible USSSA car sticker—exclusively available to USSSA supporters only, 2) access to special offers and discounts from the USSSA’s many sponsors and partners and 3) the knowledge you are supporting the USSSA’s continued efforts to promote the Sport of Snowshoeing in the US and, working with the World Snowshoe Federation, to ultimately attain inclusion in the Winter Olympic Program.
