Who we are?
The Buck Hill Ski Racing Team is dedicated to athlete development in alpine ski racing. The Team is built on a strong legacy of developing world-class and Olympic athletes, and it provides training and coaching to athletes who compete regionally and nationally each year.
The Buck Hill Ski Racing Team is not your average ski club.
In 2008 the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Association recognized the Buck Hill Ski Racing Team as the Ski Racing Team of the Year and in 2014, it received the first Gold Club Certification in the Midwest. This designation is reserved for only the top 10% podium clubs and is intended for clubs that are “Best in the World” – those clubs that are financially stable, exhibit consistent athletic success and serve as a model, both organizationally and athletically, for other member clubs.
The Buck Hill Ski Racing Team’s dedicated partnership is comprised of the executive director and coaches, the Buck Hill Ski Racing Club, and The Buck Hill Ski Resort.
Working together, the partners advance and maintain the Buck Hill Ski Racing Team as the premier junior alpine racing team in the country. We are grateful and proud of the contribution and efforts made by the Buck Hill Ski Racing Team community.

The executive director, along with the head coaches, organizes top notch age class programs, pace setting athletes, athlete development, camps, schedules, and dryland training. The executive director coordinates the efforts of the three leadership partners and manages camps and out of division training opportunities and races for our athletes
Buck Hill Ski Racing Club
The Buck Hill Ski Racing Club, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is a fundraising and support entity formed to support the very best in ski race training and development for our athletes. With the generous contributions of our sponsors, member volunteers, and donations from alumni and the ski racing community, each member benefits from our youth programs up to the FIS level and the US Ski Team. The Club also provides funding for scholarships, special equipment needs, camps, and out-of-division training expenses such as car rental, airline tickets, and hotels. These extra expenses far exceed the fees paid by team members.
Buck Hill Resort
The Buck Hill Ski Resort provides our dedicated training venue, and it carefully prepares our race training facility with first class snowmaking and grooming. The Buck Hill Ski Resort also provides our club room for athletes and maintains the rope tow, lifts, and the best equipment for on-site training.
Gold Certified Club
The Buck Hill Ski Racing Club has held the Gold Certified Club status, the highest level of Club Certification awarded by U.S. Ski & Snowboard, since 2014. Buck Hill was the first club in the Midwest to achieve this honor.
The Buck Hill Ski Racing Club was recognized nationally as the "Club of the Year" in 2008!
