Masters Program

About the Masters Program

The Alyeska Masters will be offering weekend training and racing for all levels of skiers (see schedule for training, races and social events). The Masters Program offers fourteen days or more of training through the season. We will usually schedule four slalom races, and four giant slalom races throughout the year. All of these races will occur on various runs at Mt. Alyeska. Racing is OPTIONAL.

Coaches will perform an assessment of your abilities and advancement throughout the season and will suggest or place you in a group that is best for you.

By enrolling in the full-time Masters Program, athletes will also be entitled to train gates during the Wednesday and Friday sessions with coaches. Some of these training days will be in conjunction with the Juniors Program teams. There will be no group skiing during the mid-week.

Training / Time / Notifications

On days that Masters are scheduled to ski we meet at the Race Training Center (RTC) at the base of Ted’s Express. Athletes will check in with the coaches at 10:00am. The schedule for the day will be written on the Masters Notice Board posted outside the RTC. Team Snap will be the primary form of updates for the notification such as weather and conditions that may result in changes to the day’s training or race schedule.

Please make sure that you provide your primary email and mobile number in your registration. Wednesday and Friday gate training and weekend training days and times will be communicated via Team Snap in advance.

2021-22 Race Season

Member Racers that have pre-paid for the race series ($150 for 8 racesand one time fee of $25 for a bib number) may go straight to the race venue. Information on times will be posted outside the RTC and sent via TeamSnap. Late racers may go to the start and will be slotted in by the Coach. Most races will have course inspection approximately between 10:30 and 11:30. The race fee covers the race (events team), video of race, and post race celebrations.
