CMAC Ski Racing
Crystal Mountain Alpine Club (CMAC) has been partnering with Crystal Mountain Resort from its inception in 1963. Since then, thousands of youth have come through the program to become lifelong talented all-mountain skiers, with some going on to race in college, on the US national team and even at the Olympics.
CMAC’s philosophy is to provide programs that are fun and enjoyable for all participants while developing strong skiing skills learned through structured training and directed free skiing using the entire mountain. This creates strong racers and excellent skiers with a deep love of the sport. The CMAC philosophy not only develops successful ski racers, but skiers who will participate in the sport throughout their lives. This philosophy also develops life skills that transcend sports.
In collaboration with Crystal Mountain, CMAC hosts several races each season. As well as being great opportunities for the racers to compete and have fun, parent volunteers get to enjoy the ski racing community and learn more about the sport through these events.
There is a range of programs from the Mighty Mite Prep program for first-time racers through to top level racing for high school athletes and even a master’s program for those who want to continue racing as adults. These programs are:

Calportland No Bull: NW cup 2019 #1
CMAC held a very successful qualifying event for our older racers. Thanks to the help from the many volunteers, we put on a high quality event! .All of the top kids from the NW attended the event and the overall winners of the weekend were Katie Holm from CMAC and Tyler Larson from SPAC. Thanks to the new snow making system we had really good coverage, and combined with some rain, a refreeze, and good grooming, we had a surface that was very firm. It was great for ski racing and quite difficult. Many thanks to Crystal Mountain for their efforts with the grooming and early lift loads for our race crew and coaches. Read the full report here and see race results here.

Congratulations to the CMAC athletes who qualified for their championship series:
Big Sky Elite FIS SL/GS
Our upper level skiers have been out on the race circuit a few times this season competing in the qualifiers for the Junior nationals. At the SL and GS qualifiers in Big Sky, Katie Holm, Evie Wright, Lewis White and Wyatt Kray competed in an Elite level FIS series. Katie led the way with some very good skiing starting from the 20’s moving into the top 15 in three races. The rest of the group was attending their first Elite level series and it was quite a challenge, but all improved their skiing through the week. Becoming a great ski racer has lots of challenges and the pressure of competition really makes you push your limits to get better. I expect all of them to come back to show some new strength and perseverance in our NW Cup Series. Read more here.
