SKI RACING SEASON 2018-2019

RACE TEAM 2018-2019

Racing provides a great way to improve your skills while having fun with your friends on the slopes. Every season RSOC competes against twenty other ski clubs in the Crescent Ski Council’s Southeastern regional racing program. Last year, RSOC’s race team took second place overall, and we hope to have another great season this year. For those who have an interest in racing, alpine, telemark, or snowboarding, now’s your chance to join. Sign-ups started in October and continue throughout the season.

All RSOC members are eligible for the team; there are no age restrictions. The youngest Crescent racer is four years old, and the oldest is over 70! Many on the program have been racing for over twenty years, and are likely to remind you of that; but, the majority of the racers are recreational skiers looking to challenge themselves on the local mountains. Competition is structured such that even first-time racers collect prizes, as all racers are grouped according to ability.

The race season starts in December and consists of five weekend races in North Carolina, split between Appalachian, Beech, Canaan Valley and Sugar, with the finals held in March at Silver Creek, West Virginia. There is no requirement to attend all the races, so you can race as many, or as few as you like. Each weekend’s multi-discipline race format consists of two runs of slalom on Saturday followed by two runs of giant slalom on Sunday. Prizes are given out each day.

Race team benefits include discounts on lodging, lifts, equipment, performance tune-ups and repairs, access to professional coaching, and an excuse to wear spandex outside in the winter. Does it get much better than that?

The race schedule is shown below. For more information, contact John Christensen by email (rsocracing@gmail.com) or phone (919) 412-3681. See you on the slopes.
