The fees for Alpine Canada (NSO), Alpine Ontario (PSO) and the four divisions (SOD, NCD, NOD, LSDA) are outlined here 2017-2018 AOA Fees-Oct 2017
The model for fee collection is that in addition to AOA collecting its own fees it collects from our members on behalf of Alpine Canada Alpin (the National Sport Organization – NSO) and the 4 Divisions (SOD, NOD, NCD, LSDA). Please note the SOD Cup racers also pay a $20/event race fee to AOA with 50% of this redirected back to the host ski club. These race fees are subject to HST as of 2017/18.
