Race Team and Race Policies

As a Hunt Hollow member, you or a family member can be part of one of the largest and most successful independent alpine racing clubs in the eastern United States... the Hunt Hollow Race Team.

Hunt Hollow Race Team is a volunteer-run “grass-roots” alpine racing program that balances a commitment to athletic excellence with an even stronger commitment to the families we serve.  We provide opportunities that allow those of all ages and levels to achieve their potential and goals as racers. More details and a complete Registration Packet can be accessed by clicking here.

Our success lies in the fact that everyone is welcome - from those who want to improve their skiing skills to those who strive to compete at the highest levels yet desire an alternative to private “academies.”  Our racing and training programs are based on those designed by the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA).  We emphasize weekend training along with additional age-appropriate weeknight training.

We would be delighted to have you or a family member join our team.  We have an excellent coaching staff, very supportive parents, and many talented athletes.  With over 100 racers in the program last year, you are bound to know some of them, and the others can become new friends as the team develops through the season.  We emphasize fun for racers of all ages and levels, and have no doubt that every racer’s skiing skills will be greatly improved.

We are looking forward to a great season. If you have any questions about the program please feel free to contact Eric Lyle, HHRT President ([email protected]) or Tyler Spitz, Head Coach ([email protected]).

Race Policies

It is a courtesy to the racers not to go through any of the gates on a scheduled race day after the course has been set up. Racers who do so or shadow the course will be disqualified from racing that day.

For Lovejoy Series Racing only Hunt Hollow members, children of Snowsports School instructors, race coaches, ski patrol members or staff will have their race points within their class accumulated for the seven races. All youth participants who race in at least five of the seven races will receive an award, with the top three places in each class receiving a trophy to recognize their overall consistent performance. These same participants will also be eligible for the Lovejoy Trophy and the Chris Cornish Memorial Trophy. Eligibility for the W. T. Hanson Most Improved Skier Award and Mark Cook Most Improved Snowboarder Award is limited to Hunt Hollow members.

At the discretion of the General Manager or Director of Mountain Operations, adult members may set gates for weekday use when a formal racing/training program is not in progress.
