Help Information for the Application Process

Phone number:
Please note we require at least two contact phone numbers, one mobile and one landline.

Home Nation Endorsement:
Please ensure that you are registered as a competitor with your Home Nation Governing Body (Snowsport England, Snowsport Scotland or Snowsport Wales) for the whole of the winter season. If you are not sure of your Home Nation registration number, please contact the appropriate home nation directly. GB Snowsport will contact your Home Nation Governing Body for confirmation of your registration before issuing your FIS licence. Home Nation registration only provides third party and civil liability insurance for racers who are resident in the UK. Therefore you must provide proof of your insurance with your FIS licence application form if you reside outside of the UK. Also please note that it is not essential for Speed Ski and Telemark applicants to be registered with a Home Nation providing they can provide proof of suitable third party and civil liability insurance cover.

Any athletes who are required to hold their own insurance, must provide a copy of it to GB Snowsport, either by using the Image upload facility (JPG or GIF only) in the personal details page of the registration form:

Upload Image

or by sending a hard copy by post to:

GB Snowsport, 101 New Cavendish St, London, W1W6XH

Please note if you send your insurance documents by post, your licence will not be approved until they have be received and verified.

FIS Number:
If you are renewing an existing (or previously held) FIS licence, you will need to enter your FIS code in the membership application. This can be found at

BASS Number:
This can be found on the BASS lists published on or by contacting your Home Nation Governing Body.

Passport Copy:

Please remember that you must provide a copy of a valid GBR passport to GB Snowsport, your FIS license will not be processed until this has been received and verified.
