The focus of Peninsula Alpine Racing (PAR) will be on beginning racing and training all the way through to the advanced ski racing techniques and tactics. Skiing fundamentals and developing a strong skiing foundation will be emphasized. All beginning racers should be able to ski and ride the chairlifts by themselves. They should be able to perform simple turning and stopping techniques. Our Junior Development Team (JDT) is geared for young racers grades 1st through 8th. We also have a full High School training and racing program. PAR has aligned itself with the MACC racing circuit, visit: https://www.maccracing.org/ for more details
On-hill video combined with proven race training progressions allows Peninsula Alpine Racing to maximize our racers learning and skill acquisition. During the season, our coaches will help to improve our racers skills by teaching the fundamentals and correct technique required for success on a race course. Goals will be assessed, and a safe and successful progression will be planned to achieve the best results. All of our coaches have strong coaching and skiing backgrounds and are passionate about ski racing. Our coaches are here to teach and enable our racers to achieve their goals.
Equipment: All racers are required to have their own ski equipment along with a ski helmet. Additional safety equipment such as shin guards and pole guards are also encouraged.
