We are the UMass Alpine Ski Team! We do both slalom and giant slalom races for about two months after a fun training camp in January. We compete in the MacConnell Division of the United States Collegiate Ski Association, with the goal of winning the USCSA National Championships. We've made it to the regionals held at Sugarloaf for the past three years! Our athletes are so excited to be back on the slopes in the coming 2022 season after a year's hiatus. We're already training and working hard to do our best.
This past year has been hard on everyone, especially on Club Sports at UMass. A year off has reduced our ability to source equipment and make sure every athlete gets the best experience they can. As a club sports team, UMass Alpine Skiing has to rely on the support of our school, friends, and family to stay competitive and compete in the USCSA MacConnell Division against other top-tier colleges and universities. Although we are fortunate enough to receive some funding from UMass, it simply does not cover everything we need. We require new gates, a video camera, walkie-talkies, and so much more equipment to get ready for the coming season. The team is committed to making this year great and getting the funds we need.
We greatly appreciate any donations to support our mission of fostering a fun, supportive environment while doing what we love most! New funds will provide the necessary equipment we need to ensure the team can continue racing with sufficient training. All gifts, no matter what size, will be impactful and immensely valued by our team members. Let's go UMass!
