Thank you for visiting the National Ski Areas Association

The National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) is a 501(c)(6) trade association serving ski areas, industry suppliers and other industry-affiliated members. NSAA is the leading source for mountain-inspired recreation, focusing on mountain safety, lifts, sustainability and growing the sports of skiing and snowboarding. The association issues operational guidance and best practices, and participates in public policy discussions. However, it is not a governing or regulatory body. Through its initiatives, educational programming and advocacy efforts, NSAA unites and supports the ski and mountain recreation industries.

Please note that NSAA is a membership-based association for ski areas and businesses; NSAA website logins are reserved for employees of member businesses.
