FAST Race Training Programs
Our alpine racing team focuses on fun and fundamental skill development for the beginner to advanced racer, ages 5 and up. Program training provides the athletes with a mix of gate running and directed free skiing from mid December to the end of March.

49° North race programs are about more than just winning races. Team goals go beyond the slopes with a focus on helping each athlete develop self-confidence, pride in accomplishment and an understanding of commitment and follow-through. Our coaches are dedicated to developing skiers with versatility, all-around athleticism and the ability to adapt tactically, both in and out of a racecourse. Family involvement is a key element to the success of our race programs. Parents' participation in hosting events and fundraisers make this an affordable and fun opportunity for the whole family. From the family here at 49° North, we hope to see you soon!

49° North offers a special rate of $299 for Unlimited Season Passes, including those enrolled in camp, so ask when you register!
