Alpine Homologations

Alpine Homologated Courses

Homologation or “course approval” is an important aspect of developing venues in which USSA athletes can perform at their highest levels. All courses on which FIS and USSA alpine races are conducted must be homologated or ‘registered’. This process includes preparation of specific documents describing the course, a site visit and report by a recognized inspector, and payment of the applicable fees.

The homologation process confirms that technical requirements have been met. It provides the organizer and technical delegates with a recommended plan for protective installations. It catalogs important information about courses in use. And it provides an opportunity for areas, clubs and organizers to discuss protective installations such as ‘B-nets/fencing’, course preparation and use of the facility with the inspector.

The application for requesting inspection for homologation and information about the homologation process, inspection, report, documentation and fees, and lists of homologated alpine courses in USSA, may be found via the links below.
