What is MSSRT?
MSSRT (Mt Spokane Ski Race Team) is the alpine ski racing team that operates at Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park. MSSRT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The team was formed in 1959 and has a long and successful history in alpine ski racing competition. MSSRT offers programs to competitors ages 5 to adult. Although MSSRT operates at Mt. Spokane, it is an independent entity that enjoys special privileges related to pass pricing, grooming, early lifts, fundraising and designated meeting and training space at Mt. Spokane, our greatest supporter!
Our coaching staff consists of dedicated and caring skiing professionals who share a genuine interest in each athlete's personal growth as a skier, alpine competitor and human being. Coaches are involved in two nationally accredited organizations: US Ski and Snowboard and PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America). Through these systems and in-house clinics, MSSRT coaches remain on the cutting edge of the sport of ski racing. All coaches are US Ski and Snowboard members and have passed background checks.
Am I ready to Join?
If you are an intermediate skier and can independently load the lift, you are ready for MSSRT! Of course an eagerness to ski, have fun, and aggressively pursue the skills of the sport are important parts of fitting into a competitive alpine team environment.
MSSRT coaches evaluate athletes during the first two weekends of training. If you are not ready, or it proves to be too much of a challenge, program fees are refunded in full.

Do I need a season Pass?
Membership does not include a season pass since MSSRT is an independent entity from Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park.
Do I Need to Volunteer?
Yes. Volunteering is an essential component of being part of a team like MSSRT. There are countless reasons why we need volunteers to make our program and services the best in the Pacific Northwest. These include helping out at home races, fundraisers, and other functions. Without volunteering, the cost of participation in MSSRT would almost double as revenue received as a result of volunteering heavily subsidizes the club's programs.
