NSSRA Member Services


The annual Combined Indemnified Bindings List, long considered one of the most important and exclusive benefits of NSSRA membership, is available at no cost to NSSRA members.

NSSRA dues, which start at $99.00 and are based on the number of stores, are a fraction of the value of the services and programs offered by NSSRA. Your dues are critical in allowing the Association to continue providing these services. New to the growing list of NSSRA services is the POS Data program in partnership with SportsOneSource, providing weekly sales information to participating NSSRA members. New to NSSRA members is the Ship Skis program, designed to drive store traffic by offering discounted service to customers who want to ship their gear rather than rent. In addition to exclusive publications like the NSSRA Retailer Compensation and Benefits Report and the annual Snow Sports Participation Report, NSSRA offers services that help you keep your costs under control. A complete listing of these services can be found below.

        NSSRA represents snow sports retailers at the semi-annual meetings of the ASTM F27 Committee on Snow Skiing.
        ASTM International, formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials, is one of the largest voluntary
        standards development organizations in the world. It develops standards, practices and guidelines for more
        than 130 areas. In particular, the F27 Committee is responsible for the guidelines that evolve into the shop
        practices specified by manufacturers in the technicians' manuals. NSSRA works to ensure that standards being
        developed by the Committee lead to procedures compatible with ski and snowboard shops' day-to-day operations.
