THAT'S RIGHT! Ski racing isn't just for our youth!
Our adult league meets Wednesday nights with course inspection at 6pm and race at 6:30pm. Our first race is January 10th. A typical night race will be on the Exhibition run at Granite Peak Ski Area but we sometimes move it to another run if necessary. The most common course we run is a Giant Slalom course and there will be dual GS at least one race this year.
The cost is $115 (and a $20 US Ski and Snowboard membership fee obtained at www.ussa.org). You can reduce this fee by volunteering in our team fundraising events and other needs the team has. We have openings on teams (or grab a few friends and make your own team), sign up here: https://gpst.sportngin.com/register/form/554480324
What if I've never raced before? That's OK! This is a very non-intimidating league where everyone is encouraged to do their best, have fun, and meet new people.
What if I just want to try it before committing? Come out on Jan 10 and try the night for free.
Do I need race skis or a race suit? Not at all. Some members do and many ski in recreational skis and coats/skipants.
Are helmets required? Absolutely.
Is there training available? Yes! (for an additional fee).
Any other days of racing? Yes, most Sundays (some Fridays) we have a NASTAR race which you can participate in at no additional cost. There are also other opportunities to race against various leagues in the area as you are interested.
What makes up a team? Teams are made up of 3-6 racers, no substitutes. The top 3 handicaps of each week are used to calculate your team score.
I don't have a team? That's OK. We have openings on teams! Or gather up some friends and make your own!
Do need a lift ticket? Yes. The fee for the adult league does not include the lift ticket to GPSA.
How old do you need to be? Minimum 21 years of age.
Are there awards? Yes, at the end of every season we hold an adult league award banquet.
Social Scene? Many members meet in the chalet post race to enjoy some adult conversation, beverage, and food.
If you enjoy skiing, being outside, having a good time...Join us this season!
