The UCSD Ski and Snowboard team is a competitive team that competes in the USCSA Southwest Collegiate Conference against nine other schools from California and Arizona: CSUF, CSULB, LMU, SDSU, UCLA, UCSB, USC, NAU and ERAU. During the ski season, the team rents a cabin in Mammoth Lakes, home to Mammoth Mountain, the largest ski resort in California. Mammoth Mountain, a seven hour drive from UCSD serves as the team’s home mountain and hosts all regular season USCSA races. Competitive events include Skier/ Boarder cross, Slopestyle, Rail Jam, Giant Slalom and Slalom.
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 to 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 way for those of you who have previously raced and wait to continue doing what you love throughout your college years, alongside a fun team!"
