It’s time to think about skiing. Give your little ripper the best start in becoming a lifelong skier by joining Red Mountain Racers.

“It is a groundbreaking year for us,” enthuses Christine Andison, President of Red Mountain Racers, “The club, and RED Mountain Resort are very happy to say the construction of the Legacy Training Centre is now complete and racers are keen to get on the snow.”

Winter holidays are also fast approaching and with it, our annual Christmas Camp. Red Mountain Racers Nancy Greene Ski League three day ski camp Dec 20,21,22 2014 with a club race on Dec 21st. Non-member skiers are also invited to register. It’s a great way to start your Christmas holidays. Come ski the gates and then, ski the mountain.

You can register for Nancy Greene or any other racing program at redmountainracers.com. It’s quick and easy and opens a world of opportunity for young skiers. Many of the world’s top freeskiers got their start in racing and names you know in this world got their start right here with Red Mountain Racers: Colston Beatson, Dane Tudor, Mike Hopkins, James Heim and Sally Steeves to name a few. James Heim has come a long way since his days as a Red Mountain Racer! See him in the new ski film, Days of My Youth.

Not only do skiers learn the fundamentals of carving and skiing gates, but then they get to take these skills and their confidence and go “all mountain”, ripping it up on all sorts of terrain at Red Mountain.

“We really want to promote a love of skiing as a lifelong sport, through introducing kids to ski racing in a fun, encouraging environment,” says Phil Patterson, head coach of Red Mountain Racers, “Attending races is optional. We focus on enjoying the snow with friends whether skiing all-mountain or in the gates.”

Over the 10 week season, on Saturdays, skiers will be introduced to focus on developing basic skiing techniques and skills to ski in as many different snow conditions and terrains as possible. The program also promotes basic ski safety, knowledge, teamwork, self confidence and most of all, how to have fun on skis. And then? We go all-mountain!
