Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association

The Rocky Mountain Intercollegiate Ski Association (RMISA) is a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) skiing-only conference. As the NCAA does not have divisions in collegiate skiing, it is composed of both NCAA Division I and Division II schools. The RMISA was founded in 1950 and was largely responsible for the creation of skiing as an NCAA sport in 1954. From 1950-76 it was men's skiing, from 1977-82 the RMISA sponsored both men's and women's skiing separately. In 1983, the NCAA incorporated women's skiing (it was an AIAW sport from 1977-82) and made it a Coed sport and the RMISA did the same.

The RMISA has won 56 of 68 skiing national championships since 1950, including 53 of 63 NCAA Championships that have been awarded and 25 of the 31 NCAA Championships since skiing went coed in 1983. Denver, Colorado and Utah are first, second and third on the list for most skiing national championships. Denver has won 23, including 21 NCAA, while Colorado has 19 (18 NCAA) and Utah 11 (10 NCAA).

Current Members[edit]

The RMISA is currently made up of nine members, six with NCAA affiliated ski teams and three associate members. The associate members can compete in regular season competition and at the RMISA Championships but cannot qualify for the NCAA Skiing Championships.
