The Alpine Ski Team was established at CSU in the 70’s. The ski team competes against teams such as Fort Lewis, Air Force, Colorado College, CU, Colorado School of Mines, Colorado Mountain College, Wyoming, and DU.
In the past the ski team has done one camp over winter break but we are hoping to organize more during pre-season. Training is optional for all racers and is held at Eldora Mountain Monday through Friday once the season is underway. All training sessions are an additional fee. Races start the third week in January and every weekend after that for 4 weekends. Each weekend has two races, one per day, for a total of 8 races. The team competes in Giant Slalom and Slalom events. Regional Championships are held at the end of February with nationals following in early March pending qualification. All ability levels are welcome and if you’ve earned USSA points in the range of 125-200 you will be competitive. Tryouts are only necessary if there are too many skiers and have not been necessary in recent years.
Team dues are typically between $830 and $930 which include lodging, food, transportation, lift tickets, and race entry fees for all races. All racers will need to get a USSA license that will be explained and purchased in the fall. The first informational team meeting will be held in September.
