We feel we have the best adult amateur racing program in the United States! CMSC skiers and snowboarders compete against others of their own ability and gender (male and female boarders compete together) and are “promoted” as their skill level increases.
That’s what sets us apart from other adult programs – we don’t use a handicap system. Our ski and snowboarder racers run the gamut from beginners to experts and master’s racers. And most importantly, we all have fun!
Interested? Our qualifications are few.
- Be 18 years old or older
- Be a member of a Cleveland Metro Ski Club that has a race team – See Club List Below
- Be ready, willing and able to have fun
Type of Courses:
Our skiers run slalom, giant slalom, super long giant slalom, and dual format.
The courses are set on intermediate and advanced slopes, depending on your skill calss, and are very similar to what you see in the World Cup. How cool is that? Snowboarders run slalom and giant slalom courses.
Our race program has two series:
Weekend Race Series:
Races are scheduled most weekends in western New York and in Cleveland. Participants can race in any or all races, earning points for themselves and their own ski club race teams.
The crown jewel of our program is Combined Race Weekend, featuring a super long giant slalom and a giant slalom on Saturday, with a slalom held on Sunday. Racers compete for the coveted Individual Combined Trophy, and earn points for the Team Combined Trophy.
Always an exciting weekend!
Wednesday Night Race Series:
On seven Wednesday nights during January and February, racers compete at Boston Mills Ski Resort on a variety of courses. After the final race, we’ll have a party and awards. Sign up today!
