Overview / Requirements


Kids 7 to 17 years old race side by side every Friday night at Summit West ski area. Our 7 week Introduction to Racing program gives kids an immersion into the world of ski racing. Coaches teach racing basics and the kids learn by doing it and having fun racing with and against their peers.


Where: Summit West. Right up from the bottom of Pacific Crest chair.


When: We plan to start on the first or second Friday in January that has decent snow coverage. Start date will be communicated to parents as soon as possible. The first night we will meet early @ 6pm, for introductions and to get kids into their groups. After the first night - groups will meet @ 6:20 in the finish area and head to the chair @ 6:30 to train. Racing Runs start @ approximately 7:30.



  • Ages between 7 and 17 (younger racers may be accepted on an individual basis based on skiing ability and independence.)
  • You must wear a helmet.
  • You must be able to ride the chairlift independently and be skiing parallel or nearly parallel.
  • You must have a lift ticket or pass (not included in program fee).


We are racing on modified CityLeague courses and a fairly strong skiing ability is needed. If you have signed up and we feel your skiing ability needs another season, we'll let you know and refund your fees.
