Student Organization: Alpine Ski Team


Description The Alpine Ski Team is a great venue for ski racers to continue racing throughout their collegiate years and to meet people with a similar interest. The Alpine Ski Team is part of the Midwest Collegiate Ski Association, which has four divisions; we are in the Lake Superior Division. Our Regional Race is held at Marquette Mountain, our home hill, every year. Addiitonally, NMU Alpine continuously sends reprsentatives to Nationals (for six consecutive years!) whch were held in Sun Valley, Idaho last year. We practice three days a week, and have five to six races each season. Outside of ski racing, our club participates in volunteer work and team bonding. Dues are $460 per person, which includes registration fees for the league and individual races, hotels, gas for traveling, equipment for practice, and team building activities. Members must supply ski equipment (must have a helmet), a season pass to Marquette Mountain, lift tickets at races, and food while traveling. Members are also required to purchase a PEIF pass for the year. No racing experience is required, although it is recommended to have skiing experience. For more information, email anhonkan@nmu.edu or jvermeul@nmu.edu club sport for people who love to downhill ski and want to race competitively. We are also open to snowboarders interested in racing! We practice three days week, travel to six weekend races across the upper Midwest, and hold fun team-bonding activities. Individuals are not obligated to go to all of these events. Our team competes in the USCSA where we're part of the Lake Superior Division of the Midwest Region, which holds an annual race at our home mountain, Marquette Mountain. The top three teams are sent to Nationals, which rotates between an East and West location each year. We have sent skiers to Nationals every year since becoming a sport club at NMU! We are a very dedicated team and show a lot of support to the Marquette community through annual volunteering events. NMU Alpine is a great way to meet students with a common interest: skiing! We spend plenty of time and have a lot of fun together, even when the snow isn't falling.
