Youth Races – Emerald Empire Youth Ski League

The Emerald Empire Youth Ski League (EEYSL) are ski teams residing in the Eastern Zone of the Pacific Northwest Ski Association (PNSA) of the Western Region of the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) dedicated to bringing together ski racers 15 years old and younger for healthy and fun ski racing competition. The ski races hosted within the EEYSL are sanctioned by USSA. Members in good standing, holding the age-appropriate USSA Competitor’s License are eligible to enter these races and register below.
