Comet Stowe Race Camp 2017: 31th Annual – New Dates!  To all Ski Racers and training gurus – Stowe has been purchased by Vail Resorts and is going to keep Stowe traditions alive, like the Comets Annual Race Camp. New this year is that the camp will be a week earlier than usual, Dec. 11th to Dec. 14th. Camp will provide SL and GS training, Video analysis, and experienced coaching (like always). With a little luck from Mother Nature we will have the Competition Training Hill buffed and ready to go. Click here for more information.

Stratton Mountain, VT December 11-15, 2017 This race training camp is being held for more than 25 consecutive years. More and more Masters participate from year to year. Participants will be divided into groups based on ability and desired performance goals. The coaches are Jim Cardenali, Tom Barbeau, Todd Harris, Sue Spencer Moses and others as required.

Ragged Mt is providing race training for interested Masters racers during the upcoming racing season.  Training lasts from the first weekend Ragged Mt is open until the end of the competitive Master`s season. There are black- out periods such as Christmas vacation and Spring breaks. However if a Master(s) is around they can jump in for training if an older group happens to be on the hill. Typically we provide an option for groups to train during Xmas but limited to just free skiing/drills etc. given limited terrain for gates. It just depends on how busy we are. Again, we are limiting the number of athletes this first season to 6 Masters with 1 coach. Membership Application . If you need more information please contact Greg Mountford (g.mountford@raggedmountainresort.com).
