FIS HELMET REGULATIONS

Athletes U14 and older (applies to ALL Interclub and Tristate racers age 12 & 13 years old and older – born 2003 or earlier) must use helmets that meet the new FIS standards and have pre-market FIS sticker.  The FIS stickers are applied only by the manufacturer and any aftermarket sticker (even by a skishop) will not be acceptable.  No sticker, no start is the new rule!

HELMETS FOR INTERCLUB

Helmets must cover the head and ears and must have hard ears (not soft ears). For those U14 and older in Interclub the new FIS helmet rule above must also be followed.

Thank you,
The Butternut Race Team
