Mt Hood Ski Racing: Teams & Info

Mt. Hood Ski Education Foundation

The Mt. Hood Ski Education Foundation was created in 1983 by local supporters of competitive skiing with one simple goal: to provide excellence in ski training and education for amateur skiers on Mount Hood. Located in Government Camp, MHSEF is the governing body of the Mt. Hood Race Team and the Mt. Hood Academy. (The Academy offers a winter term private school experience for grades 7-12, enabling students to balance academics with full-time ski training.) For over 30 years, MHRT has called Skibowl home, providing rewarding experiences for youth and families. Besides achieving proficiency in a sport to enjoy for a lifetime. many MHRT skiers gone on to race at the college level and in regional PNSA and FIS races. Most notably, recent Mt. Hood Academy alum, Luke Winters, from Gresham, OR was named to the USSA Ski team in January 2018.

Race Training

Learn-to-Ski Race Camps Once young skiers age 6-8 are able to ride the lifts, negotiate intermediate terrain, and put on their own equipment they are welcome to join a Learn to Race Ski Camp coordinated by the Mt. Hood Race Team. Racers train on three consecutive Saturdays or during holiday daybreak, three days in a row. All Learn- to-Race Camps are conducted at Mt. Hood Skibowl. Coaches meet participants and their parents inside the Skibowl Multorpor Lodge at 9:30 am. Skiers break for lunch at 11:30 and ski training ends at 2:30 p.m. Free skiing follows.

Mitey Mite Racing Mitey

Mite Racers train at Mt. Hood Skibowl and compete here and at other ski resorts on Mt. Hood. The Mitey Mite ski program teaches basic skiing and racing techniques to girls and boys ages 6-13 with an emphasis on fun. Prior racing experience is not required; however, skiers should be able to ride the lifts and negotiate the intermediate terrain. Each week, they’ll just keep getting better. Skiers ages 9 – 12 can try a Learn-to-Race camp to test their interest in ski racing or they can join the Mount Hood Race Team directly. If a skier decides to join the team after completing a Learn-to-Race Camp, the cost of the camp is applied to his or her team members.
