Welcome parents, racers and coaches to the 2017-2018 WMRT race season. WMRT is comprised of great families, dedicated ski racers and committed coaches. It is wonderful to have everyone back and we welcome all of you that are new to our race team family.
Wachusett Mountain Race Team is a non-profit parent operated program. We have operated and maintained a strong fiscal budget coming into this season which allows us to attract and retain excellent coaches as well as invest in communications, fencing, timing and the necessary equipment to insure that our coaching staff and racers are equipped with the best ski racing technology we can possibly provide. Safety for our racers is our utmost concern. Therefore, we ask all parents to become actively involved in supporting the team and improving our ability to sustain an outstanding program. You do not have to be a skier to volunteer! As a demonstration of our success and commitment the kids posted great results in previous seasons. WMRT had athletes from all age groups (U21/U19, U16, U14, U12) qualify for Post Season events, competing in U19/U21 Eastern Finals, Tri-State Championships, U16 Finals, U14 Easterns, Can-Am's, and the U12/U14 Piche’ Invitational.
Our facilities play a vital role in our ability to run a successfull junior alpine race program. At Wachusett Mountain, we have the best in the region! The Crowley family and all the staff at Wachusett have provided our club with uncompromising support over the years, at levels unmatched by any host mountain in the region.
The members of the WMRT Board of Directors volunteer their time and energy to all the racers, coaches and the program in general and without their dedication, WMRT would not be the junior race program that it is today! We are a tight knit community. We look forward to seeing our old friends again this season and welcoming any newly joining families.
Ski Fast, Ski Safe, Have FUN!
||Welcome to the 2017-2018 Wachusett Mountain Race Team! I look forward to great season of skiing, racing, skill building and fun!
We hope to have another banner year of snow to train, race and free ski throughout New England and of course, at our awesome home Wachusett Mountain. I look forward to focusing on excellent sportsmanship, individual triumphs and Team results this season. We will explore a variety of training drills, on and off snow strength building and agility. During the season you will learn how to improve your times and overall best.
We have a strong WMRT coaching staff and support to aid in all your needs and we will work as a group to come together and have a lot of successes and fun. Whether you are a first-timer or seasoned racer, we will strive to keep the excitement of the sport and passion, which lead you to want to develop your personal best and reach your potential. The diversity of level helps us all to be constant teachers and learners as we cheer on our teammates who compete in their first race or others who prepare for the Eastern Champs or US Nationals.
I would like to thank everyone for your overwhelming support. The Board, the Mountain, the Parents and the Coaches have expressed their best wishes, and I strongly believe that we, as a team, can make another memorable season!
Have a great racing season and think snow!!
