Dear 7th and 8th graders:

Do you enjoy downhill (alpine) skiing? Would you like to learn how to ski race? The Minneapolis Alpine Ski Team (MAST) may be just for you.

Slalom ski racing is a varsity sport of Minneapolis Public Schools and MAST is Minneapolis’ slalom racing team. MAST is open to Minneapolis students in grades 7-12. Everybody races as part of a team, either varsity or junior varsity. No racing experience is necessary. We offer excellent coaching and training, a fun and friendly team atmosphere, exciting competitions against other high school ski teams, and the chance to participate in the fastest, non-motorized sport in the world! Financial assistance is available! Our team is very welcoming and supportive of its seventh and eighth grade students.

Learn more about MAST and sign up for the team at Interested athletes should sign up right away, as space is limited and now is the time to take advantage of pre-season race gear swaps in early October. You can also contact our Head Coach, Mark Conway, 612-275-8392, or email if you would like to learn more about our sport and team. It is never too soon or too late to learn to ski race.
