Program Details

Snow Summit offers a competitive ski racing program designed to improve technique, competitive attitudes, sportsmanship and work ethic. Participants can choose their level of commitment from our full time programs to weekend and development programs. The Snow Summit Race Team provides:

  • Training level from development to Federation Internationale de Ski (International Ski Federation) level competition
  • Full-time USSA certified coaching staff
  • Training in physical and ski preparation, ski technique, and racing theory
  • Training that follows the US Ski Team Managed Athlete (MAP) program and the US Ski Team Basic Alpine Skill Evaluation (BASE) Test

* Members are required to provide their own equipment.

Full Time Race Team

The Full Time Race Team trains 5 days a week for ages 8-13 and 6 days a week for ages 14-19. The focus of the training is based upon the FarWest Skiing / Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA) race calendar. Races are held primarily in Southern California for ages 8-13 and across California and Nevada for ages 14-19.

Racers that excel have the opportunity to qualify for regional and national events. The races in which each athlete will compete are selected on an individual basis, and are determined by the athlete’s level of preparation and his pre-season plan.

Full Time race team members also have training during holiday camps at no additional cost as well as Tyndall Haus privileges.

  • Weekend Race Team joins the Full-Time Race Team in training on weekends
  • Encouraged to attend USSA and FarWest sponsored races with the Full-Time Race Team
  • Uniform provided for a nominal rental fee
  • Access to the clubhouse for equipment storage
  • Tyndall Haus privileges

Weekend Race Team

The Weekend Race Team is a program for skilled racers between the ages of 8-19, who commit to 4 hours of morning training on Saturdays and Sundays only. The program is designed to prepare racers for competitive racing, unlike the All Mountain Team that focuses on skill development with more time on the snow in a variety of terrain.
