Thursday, September 06, 2018 4:30 PM

The Minneapolis Alpine Ski Team (MAST) welcomes athletes to register for the 2018-2019 season. MAST is a competitive MPS high school alpine ski racing team open to MPS students in grades seven through twelve. Below is a quick overview. For registration or more information, visit our website https://www.mplsalpineski.org/.

·         The season runs from Nov 12 (dryland until the ski hill opens) to Feb 13.

·         We welcome students of all ability levels who have a desire to learn and master the skills of alpine skiing and the tactics of slalom racing. We have space for the first 100 athletes to register.

·         Our season is just over fourteen weeks long. Once the ski areas open, we usually offer six to seven training sessions a week at Hyland Hills and elsewhere. We expect athletes to attend at least three training sessions a week when races are scheduled, and four when they are not.

·         Races are held at Hyland Hills as well as Welch Village, Wild Mountain, Giants Ridge and Spirit Mountain

·         Depending on one’s level of participation, the cost is approximately $675-$1,425 excluding equipment. 

·         Parents are strongly encouraged to volunteer, this helps keep our costs significantly lower than those of club teams.
