The document linked below was produced by the IFSA Board of Directors in conjunction with several snow sports governing bodies and the guidance of multiple health authorities. Our intention is to provide the Freeride community with tools and guidance to successfully navigate the 2020-2021 competition season amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Our COVID-19 Competition Guidance is living document that will be updated as needed in light of new developments and evolving health guidelines amid this ever-changing landscape.  

All members of the IFSA Freeride community are expected to familiarize themselves with the document below and observe the recommendations in order to ensure our best chances of executing a successful season. Everyone must adopt personal responsibility to keep themselves, their families, and our mountain communities safe and healthy during these times. 

With the health and safety of the Freeride community as our focus, the IFSA will continually assess developments related to the COVID-19 virus and adjust guidelines and protocol accordingly.
