The Bogastow Ski Team welcomes 7-18 year-olds to join us in the pursuit of better turns, life friendships, and faster times. The team provides young skiers training on carving fundamentals and race tactics through Wednesday Night practices at Nashoba Valley, and weekend races at local Boston-area mountains.

Competition is in Slalom and Giant Slalom disciplines, competing at local ski areas against other Boston-area clubs in the Eastern Massachusetts Buddy Werner League (EMBWL). 7 year-olds and younger race on a smaller course. No racing experience is required, but skiers must be able to competently navigate lifts and all of Nashoba Valley. We love sharing the learning process around carved turns, but we are not a beginner ski school program.

Season Specifics

  • Practices are on Wednesday nights from 6-8pm at Nashoba Valley, starting after the New Year.  Optional pre-season at Pat’s Peak starting in Mid-December.
  • Races begin on the weekends after the new year, with locations at Nashoba Valley, Ski Ward, Bradford, and Blue Hills.
  • Racers are not obligated to attend every practice or race, but must attend at least three races to compete in the Championship Race, which is a highlight of the season.
  • Skiers compete in age groups based on their age as of December 31, 2023. The age groups are 7 & under (U8), 8-9 (U10), 10-11 (U12), 12-13 (U14), 14-15 (U16), and 16-18 (U18).
