MINDFUL, DILIGENT, PASSIONATE LEARNING
Strong individuals through ski racing
We have a knowledgeable coaching staff eager to share their passion for ski racing with our young racers. Our coaches are US Ski & Snowboard certified and have both racing and coaching experience.
We are a race team focused on making ski racing fun and affordable for racers of all age-levels. Tuition covers coaching fees and training space.
Our season includes focused regular season race training at Stevens Pass and Snoqualmie Pass from December through April. In addition there are on snow spring, summer and fall camp opportunities.
The vision of the Skykomish Ski Team (SST) is to provide a structured and managed program for young, competitive racers to develop the skills and habits that will engender future success in ski racing, ski cross (SX) and in life. We teach life skills of mindful, determined, diligent, and passionate learning through sport for success in the challenges of competition and life.
We have built a culture that strives for excellence focused on respect for each other, the mountain, our competitors and oneself. SST fosters the ethos by which to train and to live, over immediate outcomes.
The fundamental elements of skiing are essential for life-long enjoyment of the sport. SST will provide each athlete with the necessary building blocks to fulfill his/her potential in the sport of ski racing, and maintain a lifelong involvement in alpine skiing and racing. Expertise is developed through quality and quantity of practice; we are dedicated to helping each individual reach their potential as ski racers and/or SX racers without leaving home and the community.
Families are the core strength of the team. Individual progress and achievement will be supported by a strong family community. The family “team” will develop and sustain a collective will, and embrace hard work, discipline and a determined focus among all team members.
