*Training or race days.
Membership in the Mount Southington (MTSO) Alpine Race Program includes an unrestricted Season Pass and personal, professional training by our certified coaches. Many racers join the program upon completion of our Intro to Alpine Racing Program.
The MTSO Alpine Race Program experience is designed above all to be fun while helping skiers develop physically, psychologically and socially. Training takes place at the Jerry Donovan Alpine Training Center, which includes advanced electronic timing equipment. Our certified coaches have extensive racing and coaching experience, and a passion for teaching, and encouraging young racers to improve their performance skills.
Each skier is placed in a class based upon age and works closely with their coaches throughout the season, learning both Giant Slalom and Slalom courses. Graduates of The Mount Southington Alpine Race Program are well prepared for future racing competition in high school, college and beyond.
Dryland training begins November 20 and continues on December 4 from 10:00AM - 12:00PM. Once the area opens, the athletes hits the slopes every Thursday from 6:30PM - 9:00PM, and Saturday and Sunday from 8:30AM - 1:30PM.
