What is the National Points Series?

All USA Skimo sanctioned races are included in the points series, in which licensed participants can earn points based on their finishing position. Ongoing points are accumulated and presented in a national points series ranking publication (updated monthly during the race season).

The goal of the USA Skimo Points List is to provide an accurate measurement tool for competitors’ results. The USA Skimo Points List is based on the ISMF World Cup Point classification as outlined in Section 2.1 of the “ISMF Sporting and Ranking Rules”.

The points and ranking system is described in the USA SKIMO POINTS RULES.


Point List Purpose:

  • To rank competitors according to their performances.
  • To ensure events are rated accordingly (HC-2) to the quality of the course and competitors entered, thereby providing a uniform ranking system for all results within USA Skimo events.
  • To encourage competitors to compete in an as many USA Skimo events as possible.
  • To encourage event promoters to improve quality of their course.

All competitors will be REQUIRED to obtain a USA Skimo license. Membership license’s are available to purchase online. USA Skimo license is used to identify you as a racer and will be required on registrations for events if you are in the race/elite category. In future years a fee may be required to help pay for the administering of the points system and licenses.
