Masters (18+) ski racing is designed for every level of competitor and offers regional, national, and international opportunities in all four Alpine disciplines—slalom, giant slalom, Super G, and downhill. Adult ski racers compete within their age group and for overall honors.

Mark Rupprecht is the Masters Head Coach and will be supported by Jack Ballard and Lisa Ballard.

The program runs from 1/9/24 through 3/28/24.

  • Tuesday afternoons: Slalom training on the Bear Back Poma
  • Wednesday afternoons: GS training on Hangman’s with junior racers
  • Thursday afternoons: Slalom training on the Bear Back Poma

A hard-sided, FIS-approved helmet is required for GS training. In addition, we strongly recommend that participants use the correct skis and protective gear when training GS or slalom.

If you wish to compete regularly in U.S. Ski & Snowboard Masters races, you will need to obtain a membership from U.S. Ski & Snowboard. See the Masters Events & Schedules page for information regarding race registration.

Joining the masters program will make you a better skier all over the mountain. That said, to get the most out of the program, you should ski at an upper-intermediate level or higher. If you can ski trails rated with blue squares at Big Sky, you can handle this program. We train primarily on Hangman’s.
