Regional Race is our introductory program with a racing focus. The developmental activities are still heavily focused on free skiing and skill development, while introducing structured technical gate training.
The Teams will ski most of the mountain, be introduced to steeps, moguls, powder, trees, jumps and Slalom and Giant Slalom race skills.
The program serves a wide range of skiing abilities, with an increased focus on cross training, goal setting, planning, and equipment. The coaches work closely together to evaluate and accommodate different ski and race levels. The program is for skiers ranging from little racing experience as well as those athletes with several years of racing behind them.
The majority of time is spent in directed free skiing, with incremental increases in gate training. Giant Slalom is the main focus of all gate training, with a gradual increase in Slalom gate training.
All athletes must be comfortable skiing all intermediate and some expert terrain. Athletes who feel comfortable skiing all runs of the Windsor chair are encouraged to consider this program.
MARA offers the following options for the Regional Race program:

Full season (12 weeks) Saturday and Sunday — the two day program is strongly advised as it leads to the fastest growth in skills.
