Masters Program Overview
The Alyeska Ski Club Masters Program consists of alpine skiers eighteen years or older who are seeking skiing and training opportunities to become better technical skiers in a fun, learning environment. The Masters program is open to all abilities and is designed to increase your technical skills through guided free skiing, drills, and gate training (and optional competitions). Most important, is that you are joining a group of people who really like to ski and have fun!
Members, through their membership fee, are entitled to full use of the Alyeska Ski Club Race Training Center, located at the base of Ted’s Express. The Race Training Center gives members a place to change into their ski gear, store day bags, eat lunch and even wax your skis.
The training season usually begins the first weekend in December and continues through the beginning of April. There are fourteen or more training days and eight races scheduled throughout the year, which consist of four slaloms and four giant slaloms. Additional gate training may be offered through our association with Alyeska Ski Club Junior Program, if desired. Gate training with the Alyeska Ski Club Junior program provides an opportunity for midweek training as well as training on the weekends when Masters training is not in session.
The social aspect of the Masters is what truly makes our program fun. We meet each weekend as a group who are excited about skiing and improving our skills. After a great day of skiing or racing we meet at variety of social events, post race parties and potlucks, (sponsored by the ODOM Corporation, Heineken and Kettle One) which are covered by your program fees. All members and their families are invited to attend. At the end of the ski season there is a Year End Awards Banquet with Overall Awards and video (also included in your membership).
