The Alpine Racing Team is affiliated with the United States Ski Association (USSA) and is committed to developing young athletes whose success in the race program goes hand-in-hand with their ability to ski in all terrain in all conditions. Our approach is based upon a proven system that creates mastery in both technical and speed events. The Alpine Racing Program as exclusive access to Welch Village's outstanding terrain, which offers more vertical than other local ski areas and has a long history of producing elite ski racers.
Staffed by experienced coaches, our program is for alpine athletes 11-18 years old who are active in USSA, D-Team or high school racers motivated to improve and take their skiing to the next level. To ensure low athlete:coach ratios, and the highest quality coaching, the Alpine Racing Program is limited to 15 athletes. Preference is given to returning athletes; exceptionally motivated younger athletes will be considered on an individual basis.
Practice sessions at Welch Village begin in early December and continue through the end of the season.
