Alpine skiing, or downhill skiing, involves sliding down snow-covered hills on skis with fixed-heel bindings. This is a sport where athletes will benefit by being in good physical condition to compete successfully and safely. Through proper training, athletes improve their physical, psychological and mental efficiency. Alpine skiing is a winter sport where athletes train and compete from December through February with the hopes of competing at the state Winter Games.
We don’t have any upcoming events at this time, but please check back and join us at one of our events in the future.
Additional Alpine Skiing Information
Regular physical activity is vital for good physical, social and emotional health. While there is a risk of injury with any type of physical activity, the benefits of staying active far outweigh the risks.
You can reduce your risk of exercise injury by:
- wearing the right shoes
- using the correct equipment
- drinking water and staying hydrated
- warming up and stretching properly
- being aware of your surroundings – always exercise and compete in a safe and level area clear of any obstacles or items
- maintaining social distancing rules when necessary (stay at least six feet away from others)
Stop exercising and seek medical help if you experience symptoms such as:
- discomfort or pain
- chest pain or other pain that could indicate a heart attack, including pain in the neck and jaw, pain traveling down the arm, or pain between the shoulder blades
- shortness of breath
- a rapid or irregular heartbeat
Athletes may compete in two events within the same level. In order for an athlete to be
considered for novice level competition, the athlete must be able to change direction, fall and
get up unassisted, and attempt to stop on his/her own.
• Athletes must wear winter competition-appropriate attire. Athletes will not be permitted to
compete in jeans. Helmets are required.
• Lunch will be served on a 4:1 athlete to coach ratio at Winter Games.
