Whether you are a novice or expert skier, the Northwest Alpine Ski Team provides students with the opportunity to improve their ski racing. This team is geared toward the individual with past ski racing (or downhill experience), who has the desire to improve their technical racing abilities, or for the recreational skier who wants to take their skiing abilities to the next level.
