Our Race programs are for kids ages 7 to 20. Participants in the Race program spend more time in the gates and actively compete. There are two different options within the Race program. The first is the Interclub program, which features a more recreational orientation and includes competitions at five different ski areas per year. The Tri-State program is for more aggressive competitors, and features coaching at Catamount and racing throughout the region most weekends of the year. Regardless of which program your child is in, you can count on this: your children will have a ball while they improve their skills.

Catamount’s TRI-STATE Race Program is for the seasoned racer. Children find TRI-STATE to be the next stepping-stone in racing after the Interclub race team.

TRI-STATE racers travel to and compete with other ski mountains in the Tri-State region. U12/14/16 is for ages 10 to 15 and U18/21 is for older racers, ages 16 to 20.

New to CATAMOUNT this year!
This program is designed for young kids who have an interest in developing their fundamental skiing skills and want to have a blast ripping around the mountain with other like-minded contemporaries. Kids are grouped together based upon a combination of age (social maturity/compatibility) and skill level considerations. Kids in the Devo Program will concentrate, first and foremost, on focused free skiing and drills designed to address balance, agility, edging, and rotary skills. Some devo kids will eventually progress further through the Race Program pipeline, graduating to Interclub or USSA racing as U12 or U14, while others will simply enjoy the Devo experience itself and use it to become better, all-round skiers.
Race Camp is included in both the Interclub and Tri-State Race Programs. The RACE CAMP is a 5 day program of race instruction, course drills, timed runs and more that runs from December 26th to December 30th. Racers will meet each day at *9:00am at the Race Center and finish each day at 2:30pm with a 1 hour lunch break (unsupervised). RACE CAMP is a great time to work on trimming those extra seconds off your finish line time. Bring your HELMETS, RACER’S ATTITUDE, and your need for SPEED. Don’t be late we like to hit the slopes on time.
**RACE CAMP does not require a Parent Association Fee
