The UCSD Ski & Snowboard team is a competitive team that competes against other colleges in southern California. The league we compete in is the Southern California Collegiate Snowsport Conference (SCCSC). SCCSC can be reached on the internet at http://sccsc.com . The colleges in this league are UCSD, SDSU, UCLA, UCSB, Cal State Long Beach, Cal State Fullerton, Cal Poly Pomona, LMU, & USC. Our league is directly affiliated with the USCSA (United States Collegiate Snowsport Association) and can be reached on the internet at http://www.uscsa.com. We have six SCCSC competitions at Mammoth Mountain, about a 7 hour van ride from UCSD. There is also potential for the racers to qualify for Regionals at Diamond Peak in Tahoe and Nationals at Winter Park, CO. The competitions include Giant Slalom, Slalom, Boarder/Skier Cross, Halfpipe, & Slopestlye.
The team rents a house for the winter season up in Mammoth Lakes, the ski resort town surrounding Mammoth Mountain. Mammoth Mountain is the largest ski resort in California and has a wide variety of terrain from beginner to extreme skiing. Mammoth Mountain can be reached at http://www.mammoth-mtn.com.
We are a recreation team at UCSD and that means that we do compete on a regular basis, however, since this is a snowsport team, it is difficult to practice any of the finer points of skiing/snowboarding. The seriousness of our league is whatever you want to make of it. This 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 want to continue doing what you love throughout your college years.
