Celebrating our 30th season, the Quechee Alpine Ski Club (aka The Quechee Ski Team) is an opportunity for children ages 7 to 18 to participate in alpine ski racing. Led by an experienced coaching staff, the Quechee Ski Team is for children who love to ski and provides them with the chance to improve their skiing skills, while learning how to race. Racers are placed in one of five different levels depending on their age and ability. There’s no racing experience required to join the team, but skiers need to be comfortable skiing all types of terrain. Younger skiers must be able to get on and off the chairlift unassisted.

As a member of the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) and the Mid-Vermont Council of the Vermont Alpine Racing Association (VARA), the Quechee Ski Team participates in racing events with teams from Killington, Middlebury, Okemo, Pico and Suicide Six. Quechee hosts four to six USSA- and VARA-sanctioned races during the season. Our parent volunteers maintain a consistent reputation for organizing and running successful races.

Our pre-season kicks off with a Dryland Training Camp run by our head coach Bernard Haskell with help from our coaching staff and Dartmouth College ski racers. There’s also a pre-season family ski trip for our older racers. Our regular season kicks off with a Holiday Week Camp. Training and races happen on the weekends during January, February and into the beginning of March. During February Vacation we have training and sponsor the Quechee Cup where teams comprised of racers and their families compete.

Registration is now open until January 14, 2018.
