Tuesday Night Training (TNT) Adult Ski Racing Program

Whether or not you have raced before…here is your opportunity to tune up your skiing skills with some great coaches and try the gates…if you choose.  For Master’s racers, gate crashers and intermediate skiers, who want to explore and refine skiing gates. Our TNT evenings are as competitive as you want to apply in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.  We combine race training with skill improvement in both slalom and giant slalom disciplines and further transition skiers into the gate skiing environment. This program offers professional racing coaches, 2 timed races and video analysis.

This adult learn-to-race and race program is always a challenge by choice and a fun opportunity to socialize with other MHRC members…without the kids!

VOLUNTEERING:

All MHRC members are asked to volunteer a number of hours to club events and support activities in the club house.

When registering for a program, you will need to complete the volunteer form and follow the instructions on the registration page prior to your participation in any MHRC program.  A list of volunteer opportunities will be described at the Ski Racing Development Program Information Session and/or can be found here.  The volunteer payments will be processed at the end of the season if the required volunteer hours are not logged with MHRC.

For members who are new to the team, MHRC is a volunteer-driven not-for-profit organization.  Volunteering is a great way to get involved in your athlete’s development and to get to know other parents. Without volunteers we would not be able to run our club or host events. No experience is necessary and you don’t even need to ski. We will provide training during the season and mentorship for all those eager to learn.
