2020-2021 season: new processes

Below are two important new processes for this season. Please read this carefully

1. Daily covid attestation process

Each day that your athlete is participating in a CMAC activity, you need to confirm that they meet the CMAC COVID Attestation prior to participation. Details of the simple process using a mobile app can be found here. Completing this attestation is a prerequisite to participation.

Coaches will be confirming that the attestation has been completed at the start of the day. 

2. Training with CMAC in case you don't have a reservation

Each week, if your athlete is going to train on a day when they don't have a reservation in the coming weekend, you need to use this Google Form to tell Crystal Mountain so that their pass does not get flagged for not having a reservation. There are two timelines:

  1. For midweek training at Crystal (not Snoqualmie midweek training) complete the form by noon on Wednesday.
  2. For weekend training, complete the form by 5:00 PM on Thursday

The form will open each week by Tuesday morning. It's awesome that Crystal Mountain is helping us with this, but still please make every effort to get a reservation to help the mountain plan.

Thank you for your cooperation and special thanks to Crystal Mountain for going the extra mile to ensure CMAC athletes can train!

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.

CMAC Programs

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:

Some getting-started resources

Here are some super useful resources for getting going this season:
