US National Championships

This page displays a year-by-year summary of US Ski and Snowboard (formerly USSA) National Championships.  There is a separate page for USSS Junior National Championships.

For each year’s championships the information displayed is primarily organizational: host community, host organization, competition venue, chief of competition, technical delegate, etc.  For championships where we have results, there will be a link to those results.  For a single year’s championships where we have a lot of content (photos, articles, etc.) we will create a page dedicated to that year’s championships, and a link to that page from this general page.

If you have content that is pertinent to USSS National Championships (results, articles, photos, video, etc.) please submit it or inform us about it and we will do our best to add it to our content.  Keep in mind that this website is a labor of love, and all the work is done on a volunteer basis.

US Senior National Championships, Year-By-Year

Below is a table showing all the information on the history of USSS Senior National Championships.  We know that we are missing some information, and we are pretty certain that some corrections to the information in the table will be needed – we need your help!

This table is sortable.  Click on the small arrows in the header row to sort.

Links to results are available for the championships for which we have results.  If you have results from championships that we do not have, please scan them to PDF and email them to us with a very descriptive subject line.

1984 – March – Fairbanks Alaska

The men’s World Cup races held in Fairbanks in March 1984 were originally slated to be held at Waterville Valley, New Hampshire. Because of a dearth of snow in the East, the races were moved to Fairbanks on short notice, after some semi-furtive negotiations which took place at the 1984 Junior National Championships in Lake Placid, New York. Jim Page, the then Nordic Program Director was looking for a willing host organization and contacted John Estle, then the University of Alaska Fairbanks Ski Coach who was representing the Nordic Ski Club of Fairbanks and the host community of Fairbanks, Alaska.
