Master's Racing

 
JHSC Masters ski racers seek to reach their best regardless of their age or when they started ski racing. Masters racing is designed for every level of competitor. It provides local, regional, national and international opportunities in all four ski racing disciplines – slalom, giant slalom, Super G and downhill. It appeals to adult ski racers who compete within age groups and for overall honors. It is a great way for NASTAR and college racers, parents of junior racers, ski instructors, USSA-certified coaches, former professional racers and ex-national team members to continue doing what they love, skiing fast and having fun.
 
Masters racing provides opportunities to meet and compete with a group of extraordinary individuals from all walks of life. The friendships that develop are a key benefit from participation. At many events, masters racing is a family affair, where two or three generations compete. Masters racing is highly social, and the masters are a welcoming group. Of the many reasons current masters give for getting involved, camaraderie always tops the list. Second, of course, is a love of competition!
 
 
We here at the Jackson Hole Ski Club strive in teaching individuals the technical aspect of carving the perfect turn whether your free skiing or in a race course. We promise you'll leave this program with a much better understanding as to how to arc a ski to create that perfect turn. So for all you back country skiers and weekend warriors, look into what we have to offer you. You're never too old to learn something.  
 
Masters athletes will generally train with PG athletes on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, and have a GS specific venue on Thursdays. Masters participants are encouraged to participate in the local adult race series (Margarita Cup) and/or travel to USSA Masters events. Travel will be up to the Masters athlete to coordinate.
The program is broken into two groups:
 
 
PART TIME PROGRAM -
One day a week with FIS Team. Aimed at Margarita Cup racers this group will train Thursday mornings focusing on fundamental technique and running courses that resemble the sets of Margarita Cups, and other non-sanctioned races.
 
FULL PROGRAM -
Up to three days a week (Tues-Thurs) program aimed at our local USSA Masters competitors which will focus on early season skill development, race preparation and competition. This program will include single-pole Slalom, Giant Slalom, and Super G training and will train with our FIS group on weekday mornings. Daily program objectives will include skill progressions, free ski and gate drills, video analysis and timing when appropriate.
