The Albany Ski Club supports racers of all ages and abilities Currently there are 3 to 4 races per year. Different clubs sponsor each race as well as the Council.
The races are similar to NASTAR race courses and are designed specifically so that all abilities are able to participate. You must sign up for a specific category before the races, and they are: Juniors (under 18), Open Class (anyone can enter), Veterans (40+), Super Veterans (55+). In other words, you have the option of racing in the open class (more competitive) or racing in your age category.
Racing fees are waived for current members. You would only have to purchase a discounted lift ticket.
Most races begin at 10:00 AM. and are over by approx. 11:30 AM. Registration begins at 8:30 AM in the base lodge.
You must notify the club race chairman if you intend to race. Pre-registration is required (you can also register that morning, but more the exception and not the rule!) . Please contact Barry Maday at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Barry at 518-339-3562.
Awards are given out at each race for most categories along with a pizza party.
***IMPORTANT*** All racers are required to wear helmets!
