Welcome to Singles League Racing

The ski race teams from the five Bay Area Singles League clubs meet in the Lake Tahoe area eight times from January to March 2014 in the spirit of fun and friendly Alpine competition. See our complete 2014 schedule. We hold Slalom and Giant Slalom races, and one Super-G, for both skiers and snowboarders.

At the end of the season, we celebrate the close of racing with our annual "Racey Affair" on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe to hand out awards for individuals and clubs and to have a fun night out.

Finally, many or 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.

We plan to have a great season in Tahoe and hope to see you there!




News

12/30/2013:
Schedule change: The February 8th/9th race weekend is changed from Northstart to Heavenly!!!!. We are scheduled to be racing on World Cup.
12/30/2013:
Schedule change: The first race weekend (Jan 4/5) will now be two days of GS racing at Alpine Meadows, both joint races with Open League. We will be racing on Kangaroo which is currently in superb condition for racing, about the best in Tahoe right now.

The Good...
12/30/2013:
The fee for drop-in guest racers for this season will be $25.00 per race. But as a special introduction, for first time racers with no previous racing experience we will charge just $10 for your first race.
11/17/2013:
Online registration for the 2014 season is now open!

Note that all league racers need to use the online registration system to register to race.

Drop-in guests don't absolutely need to register online - if you like getting up early to stand in line then you can do it on race day, but if you pre-register it makes things simpler for us and for you on race day.

11/17/2013:
Errata: We previously showed nine races on the schedule and included in the race fee. That was an error and the ninth race (the 2nd of two at Homewood) is an Open League race. Singles/Sierra League racers will be able to participate in it, but will have to pay Open League's guest racer fee to do so.
11/10/2013:
Race and get paid! Like most things, our race fees have gone up a bit this season. However, something new this season is that each day that you volunteer to help out by gatekeeping or manning the scoreboards we will pay you $20 for doing it.
So gate-keep just once and this season's races will actually cost you less than you paid for the smae number of races last season.
11/9/2013:
The schedule for 2014 is now posted.

Race Results

Preliminary 2014 race results are now posted on the results page.


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.
