New Participant Lottery Draw Process

Given the popularity of this program we have had to institute a maximum capacity to preserve the program’s quality. Based on management of ski races, free skiing, and volunteer coaches, we have determined 200 participants is an appropriate cap. The Alyeska Ski Resort also requested we institute a cap of 200.

This season we will institute a Lottery Process for new AMM participants if our returning athletes and interested new applicants exceed 200. The intent of the process is to provide transparency, support family involvement, encourage coaching commitments and ensure we maximize the program capacity. Children must be between ages 7-13 as of December 31, 2018.

The following is the priority group status for drawing new potential participants:

  • Siblings of returning Alyeska Ski Club participants.
  • Current ASC Coaches’ children or grandchildren.
  • Former athletes in other ASC ski Programs.
  • New potential participants.
    • New potential participant’s siblings:
      • If more than one sibling of a family register as new participants, they are all entered into the program when one is drawn. This preserves family participation in the program.

    New potential participants not drawn in the Lottery Process will be encouraged to participate in other Alyeska Ski Club programs.

    If a new potential participant does not meet the ski tryout requirements, another participant will be randomly drawn pursuant to the above priority group status and notified by email to attend tryouts.
