RACING CLUB IS ALL ABOUT FUN RACING,
FRIENDLY RIVALRIES AND GREAT APRÈS-SKI PARTIES
Tweets by @sugarbushrc
For over 40 years, the Sugarbush Racing Club has been the place in the Valley for friendly ski race competition and for friends who share a passion for skiing to meet. The
Club is all about fun racing, friendly rivalries, and great aprés-ski
parties. Our goal has been to get together once a week for a two run race challenge.
If youre worried youre not fast enough to race dont be! We run the whole gamut of talent and skill. At one end of the spectrum, we have some of our more serious racers, who always go for broke, and who always wear their skintight downhill suits. (We affectionately call these guys "The Suits".) At the other end of the spectrum, youll find people racing who have very little experience in gates but race just for the sheer joy of it. However, the one thing we all share, is a love of skiing and snowboarding. The SRC welcomes skiers of all ability levels.
When and Where:
SRC and Sugarbush Resort have reached an agreement which will insure that our club resumes its Thursday race series this coming winter. The framework agreement provides for a dedicated course on Racers Edge. In addition, Sugarbush has committed to a feature race on the Legend’s course. We race Giant Slalom using a dual course format. The races begin at 10:00am and run until 1:00pm.
Most importantly, the aprés ski party begins at 4:30pm at one of the great restaurants in the Valley (See the Schedule of Events page for changes in the race schedules and the party locations). This is where youll enjoy good company, complimentary hors d'oeuvres, great door prizes, and get a first glimpse of the race results for that day. See our Race Registration page for more information on how you can get in on all the racing and partying fun.
Some of our members have been racing every week for over 20 years, others have just discovered us more recently. Ages range from those in their 20s, all the way up to some in their 80's. Everyone is welcome! Although the Club races are reserved for SRC members, you are invited to come out and give it a try before signing up as a member. Just come out, pay your race fee at the starter's shack and see what its all about! See our Membership page for more information on how to join the SRC, and add a new dimension to your skiing and snowboarding fun. The SRC welcomes skiers of all ability levels.
The SRC will use the NASTAR scoring and reporting system. Racers can log onto www.nastar.com and see how you stacked up against other racers in your age and race category across the nation.
The Club has other social activities during the race season and during the summer. (See the Schedule of Events page) We have many members who do not race or even ski. Meeting friends and new people in the Valley is fun. Another reason for joining the Sugarbush Racing Club. (See our Membership page )
