2020-2021 season: new processes
1. Daily covid attestation process
Athletes and coaches need to complete a daily COVID attestation to be allowed to train (or coach). Details are here.
2. Training with CMAC in case you can't get an ikon reservation
Crystal Mountain is ensuring that CMAC athletes can get on the hill to train even if there are no available Ikon reservation slots. Please these updated steps very carefully every week in which you cannot get a reservation for your athlete.
3. Be sure you have you pass scanned
If you're only training on Gold Hills, be sure that you get your pass scanned on another lift so it doesn't seem that you didn't use your Ikon reservation.
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:
