Welcome to Singles League Racing

The ski race teams from the five Bay Area Singles League clubs meet to race in the Lake Tahoe area a number of times from January to March 2021 in the spirit of fun and friendly Alpine competition. See our complete 2021 schedule. We hold Slalom and Giant Slalom races 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!



The Good...
Race and get paid! Our race fees have not gone up for a few seasons now and we are one of the cheapest ski race league to compete in. However, you can make it even cheaper by volunteering to help out by gatekeeping or manning the scoreboards on just one of the 3 courses on a race day and we will pay you $20 for doing it.

Note that everyone is expected to help with gatekeeping at least once through the season, so please do volunteer yourself at some point and don't make our hard-working (and unpaid volunteer) race directors have to come chasing after you for it.

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.
