What gear do I need?

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.

How do I enter a masters race?

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.

How good of a skier should I be?

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.
