Welcome to the Santa Fe Ski Team 2014/15
Pre-Olympic Alpine Ski Training with World-Class Coaches
For over 50 years the Santa Fe Ski Team has developed the next generation of alpine ski racers.
Starting at 7 or 8 years of age we train young skiers in the disciplines of Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super G, and Downhill. For Adults above 21 we offer a Masters Program.
The Santa Fe Ski Team trains from November through April, conditions permitting, on Thursdays, Saturday, and Sundays at the Santa Fe ski area, or at other ski resorts in New Mexico and Southern Colorado. We compete in the USSA Rocky Mountain Devision.
While we drive development as athlets and ski racers we also focus on leadership skills formed by sportsmanship, respect for others, confidence, self-discipline and focus on excellence in a fun, supportive environment that is highly conductive to learning. We support everybody in reaching their goals and living up to their fullest potential. We do this with the help of world-class coaches, who mentor and accompany our young and adult racers even beyond this competitive, high-performance sport.
NEW TRAINING VENUES
We are very excited to announce that over the summer Ski Santa Fe has graciously expanded Azmataz (the run adjacent to Muerte) to provide our Team with an exclusive gate training venue for this season. We anticipate that this new training run will provide us with new opportunities for consistent gate training throughout the season.
In addition we have secured a training site at Sipapu Ski Area for early season training and holiday race camps.
