The UCSD Ski and Snowboard team is a competitive team that competes in the USCSA Southwest Collegiate Conference against schools from California and Arizona. These schools include: CSULB, LMU, NAU, SDSU, UCLA, UCSB, USC, and The Claremont Colleges. During the season, the team spends our weekends practicing and racing at regional mountains. Our competitive events have previously been held at Mammoth Mountain, the largest ski resort in California, and Arizona Snowbowl in Flagstaff, AZ. Mammoth, which is a seven hour drive from UCSD, serves as the team’s home mountain and hosts almost all our USCSA races. Competitive events include Skier/ Boarder cross, Slopestyle, Rail Jam, Giant Slalom and Slalom. Practices will be held during Winter Quarter at Big Bear & Snow Summit in Big Bear Lake, CA.
Competing in the races is highly encouraged for all team members, as they have the opportunity to qualify for regional and national competitions.
The team is composed of a mix of competitive racers and those just learning their way down the slopes. Joining the team is a great way to start racing if you have never done it before. It is also a great way for previous racers to continue doing what you love throughout your college years, alongside a fun team!
