The Buck Hill Ski Racing Team can sometimes seem intimidating but you can practice and race on any level that meets your schedule!  And it is FUN!!


  • Money already paid to the D-team can be transferred toward the BH Ski Team dues and the Buck Hill Ski Racing Team Club Late Fees will be waived.
  • As a gold certified US Ski and Snowboard Club, the only alpine race program in Mid-west, we strive to be one of the best alpine ski racing programs in the country. Over the last 10 years, five of our athletes were named to the US Ski Team. The most recent is Isaiah Nelson who was named to the US Ski Team at the end of last season and who still practices with our team.
  • Our current coaching staff includes three formal National Ski Team Members, an Olympian, and National Hall of Fame Development Coach.
  • Creating champions in skiing and life!  “Life skills, confidence and independence.”
  • The best female ski racer of all time, Lindsay Vonn, started her career with the Buck Hill Ski Racing Team!
  • We like to have athletes join our team by age ten since years between 10 and 15 are crucial in athlete development.
