Alpine Canada fee: $35

Masters – National Card
A Masters’ national card can be purchased through your club or provincial alpine association and allows members to compete in Alpine Canada sanctioned events across Canada (racers must be over the age of 18). Racers with an Alpine Canada national card may participate in the entire schedule of sanctioned Masters’ races. They will be listed on the national database and receive world cup points and are eligible for nomination to the national Masters’ team. National cards are also valid for training with an Alpine Canada sanctioned club.
Alpine Canada fee: $55

Masters – FIS License
To participate in international FIS Masters’ events in Canada, the USA and other countries, racers require a current FIS Masters’ competitor number. FIS licenses are acquired by Alpine Canada through your provincial alpine association and are available for members over the age of 30.
Alpine Canada fee: No fee, but members must already hold a National Card to be eligible.

*Please note, FIS Masters’ ski length recommendations do not apply to the Canadian Masters’ events.
