US Ski & Snowboard Certified

Sky Tavern is one of only 40 race teams in the country to be certified by US Ski & Snowboard, the home of the US Ski Team. This means our coaching staff, methods and entire organization passed a rigorous review by the National Governing Body of ski racing.

Sky Tavern since 1948


Ski Tavern Race Team

As a member of the Tahoe League Race Series and USSA Far West, kids learn to carve gates and a lot more. Racing is about more than the fastest down the hill, but also about becoming a great person. Racers might be described as the "Scouts" of skiing. A huge amount of life lessons can be learned while wearing a speed suit. That said, our group has produced some amazing champions with more on the way. Travel to other resorts will be necessary to compete. The Race Team pratices Saturdays, Sundays and sometimes mid-week off snow. Race Team is open to any age, from just out of SkyKids to High School. In fact most of the great High School racers are from the Sky Tavern Race Team. The kids start training and working out together in November, so don't put it off!

  • Students must be skiing at a beginning parallel turn ability, minimum.

  • Students must be willing to participate in a full day of race training. Most train both Saturday and Sunday

  • Parents must be willing to participate. This is very important!

  • All Race Team students must commit to be challenged, working hard and having lots of FUN!

We take racing serious. The Head Coach invented Forward Ski, a training device used by the US Ski Team. World Champions use it and so do our kids! For more information please contact the Sky Tavern office.
