McIntyre Ski Team offers instructional ski racing for children ages 6 to 13. Racers will learn the fundamentals of skiing and apply these skills to active alpine racing. Athletes will master the skills of racing and compete in races at ski areas across the state. Races are held by members of the New Hampshire Alpine Racing Association (NHARA) and United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) affiliated clubs.
McIntyre Ski Team also offers weeknight and weekend advanced level training for athletes ages 14-18 competing in the USSA/NHARA racing at other alpine race clubs and high school alpine racing teams. The U16-U18 program also provides support to our own team members at USSA races.
