The Masters Racing program is for the Master racer who wants to continue their ski training and racing in a weekend adult program. Some of the participants compete in the New England Masters race series, while others just love to ski fast and train lots of gates. The training on varied terrain with dedicated program coaches will give an advantage to the master aged athlete who wants to continue to develop their technical and tactical skills. Typical equipment needs include: FIS approved GS Helmet (no GS ‘soft ears’), a GS suit, slalom protection gear, a back protector, and properly sized SL and GS skis. Participants are encouraged to become members of the United States Ski Association (USSA).
Requirements: USSA Masters Membership, FIS Approved GS Helmet (no ‘soft ears’)
Times: 8:30am to 2:30pm (Lunch Break 11:30am to 12:30pm)
The Master-Racing program also offers a Friday-Sunday (Masters + Friday) program for those Masters racers looking for more skiing and training. The Friday program runs from 9:00am-2:30pm on all non-holidays.
MASTERS 101 - M1
The Masters-M1 program is for the newer Master skier or racer who wants to improve their skiing skills, train in entry-level courses, and enjoy skiing Stratton with a like-minded group of adults. Participants will work on their skiing and training skills in a relaxed atmosphere and may join in with the Masters-Racing program once they are ready. Dedicated coaches will teach and guide the group through GS and SL skills, as well as free skiing fundamentals. This is a program for those looking to learn and have a fun time in the process. This is a morning program that runs from 8:30am - 11:30am.
Times: 8:30am to 11:30am
The 2018/19 Season is coming to an end. It's been an amazing season and one that had highlights for all athletes. Congrats to everyone in SWSC on all their hard work and dedication!
Don't let all the hard work end in March! Lots of improvements can be made in a short time over the summer and fall. Time on snow matters with athlete development and supplemental skiing and training is a great way to continue the progress made over the winter. A short 2 week Summer training camp can be as much skiing as a month of skiing in the winter and incredibly productive!
U.S. Elite Camps is the preferred summer ski camp for SWSC. SWSC coaches, as well as additional full time coaches work with the athletes in a fun summer environment to offer the additional training needed off season. No racing, no pressure, just athlete skill development. U10's through U19's and Masters can all benefit from addition ski time. U.S. Elite Camps uses only professional, experienced coaches for all camps. There are no kid/athlete 'coaches' at these camps, only Professionals. The camp also brings a house mom/nurse to care for the younger ones and offer 24hr care!!
