CCC Development Level Racing License for Younger Skiers
Skiers born in "2002 and after" can now purchase a CCC Development License for the 2016-17 season.  The Development License will feature the same benefits as a regular license holder including preferred seeding in races, inclusion of results on the Canada Points list and access to a special annual discount to Ski Trax magazine.  With the inclusion of the Development License CCC will be able to more accurately track the development of young skiers in the Training 2 Train and above levels of the Competition Model.  Racers competing at this level will also benefit by having applicable race results placed in the Canada Points List for reference when race category seeds are determined by points.

CCC Guide license ONLY for athletes with a visual impairment:
The visually impaired athlete is to purchase online their CCC race license as well as a guide license of $15 for the season. The guide license allows the athlete to have as many guides in a season as necessary for them to compete.  The guide does not need to purchase a CCC licence; however every unlicensed guide must sign a waiver at their first race of the season. If the regular and only guide of the athlete has a CCC race license the athlete does not need to purchase the guide license.
