The Shakespeare Cup!

All of our MARA athletes are highly encouraged to participate in the races.  Many kids find the races to be a very fun and rewarding experience.  Masters racers are encouraged to race as well.

Giant Slalom is scheduled for Saturday and Slalom will be on Sunday.  The courses will be set on the Lower Winter ski run, our usual race location.

We understand that competition is not for every athlete, and those MARA athletes who do not participate in the races will have the opportunity to ski on their regularly scheduled day.  Understand, however, that your child’s assigned coach and skiing peers will be different than on a regular training day because many of the coaches will be helping with the races.
