What is SSRA?
Spokane Ski Racing Association is the alpine ski racing team that operating at Mt. Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park. SSRA 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. SSRA offers programs to competitors ages 5 to adult. Although SSRA 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: USSAand PSIA (Professional Ski Instructors of America). Through these systems and in-house clinics, SSRA coaches remain on the cutting edge of the sport of ski racing. All coaches are USSA 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 SSRA! 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.
SSRA 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. Athletes may also choose our TBYB, try before you buy program. (In any involvement with SSRA, TBYB or otherwise, electronic enrollment must be completed)

Do I need a season Pass?
Membership does not include a season pass since SSRA 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 SSRA. 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 SSRA would almost double as revenue received as a result of volunteering heavily subsidizes the club's programs.
