The sport of alpine ski racing began in 1922 with a slalom race in Murren, Switzerland and the first American ski race was held in 1923 at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. This sport first joined the SSWSC in 1931. These races are scored by time only. Runs are timed down to the 1/100th of a second. The SSWSC currently has 400 alpine participants in our race and development programs. Our training encompasses all four disciplines including downhill, super G, giant slalom and slalom.
With an emphasis on fundamentals, free-skiing and overall passion for the sport, our athletes have the opportunity the excel to the best of their ability. Participants have two world class training venues in the SSWSC-Stevens Family Alpine Venue at Steamboat Ski Resort and the historic Howelsen Hill. Whether your child is chasing an Olympic dream, hoping to compete in college, or simply to improve their skills to help them enjoy alpine skiing for a lifetime, we strive the assist them in realizing their full potential.
