Welcome to Singles League Racing

The 2021 season, like so many other things, has unfortunately been hit by the Covid situation and we will not be holding any club races this year. The Far West Championships are, at this point in time, still scheduled to go ahead. See our remaining 2021 schedule here.

In a normal season the ski race teams from the three Bay Area Singles League clubs would meet to race in the Lake Tahoe area a number of times through a ski season in the spirit of fun and friendly Alpine competition. We hold Slalom and Giant Slalom races for both skiers and snowboarders.

At the end of the season, many of our racers compete in a championship weekend, the Far West Championships (this year to be held at Mammoth Mountain) racing against Far West member leagues from Oregon to Southern California.

Ski racing in the 2021 season

This is obviously a difficult time for everyone, and for many people ski racing will be the last thing on their minds right now. However the current situation is that ski resorts are opening and although everything is in a state of flux, we are attempting to organize some limited ski racing for those who do want to take part, if it proves possible. Currently we have one Singles League race weekend on the schedule, plus the Far West championships in April.

The racing this season (and skiing in general) will have protocols in place for safety under Covid, and anyone who wants to race will need to agree to comply with those is they are to take part. Details will be announced later.

Ever thought about ski racing?

Think it's something only for the expert-level competitive athletes? Well think again. Our club-level racing league is aimed at all levels of skiers and snowboarders, from total beginners up to experienced racers. We race in classes covering 11 skill levels, and arrange a number of training clinics throughout the season, including beginner race training for the first timers. Sure there's a good competitive side if that's what you want, but really it's all about having fun. And it's a great way to improve your skiing.

We do allow guest drop-ins to compete in each race (for a small fee) so that could be an option if you just want to give it a try or can't commit to a full season.

If you think you might be interested in giving it a try, take a look at the clubs page and contact one in your area. If you simply want to drop in and race as a guest then you should register yourself via the guest registration page and then turn up (early) on the race day, but if you've never raced before then we would really recommend talking to one of the club race directors first.
