Typical equipment needs include: FIS approved GS Helmet (no GS ‘soft ears’), a GS suit, slalom protection gear, a back protector, and properly sized SL and GS skis. Participants are encouraged to become members of the United States Ski Association (USSA).

Friday Training Update
This coming Friday thru Sunday SWSC is hosting the Vermont U14 State Championships! This is an exciting event and a huge undertaking for the SWSC event team and coaching staff. 
 
With this, there will be no Friday training this week. All available coaching staff will be needed to run Friday's championship race. We don't cancel Friday training often, as we know it's an important training day for the team, but it's hard to find parent volunteers on Friday's and we are still not covered appropriately for the race. 
 
Please come and volunteer and cheer on the SWSC U14's at the State Champs!!
 
Thanks!

What is the Nathan M. Carreira Memorial Race?

  • A panel slalom scored ski race for USSA/VARA registered members hosted by the Stratton Mountain Winter Sports Club to honor Nathan Carreira’s (2003-2018) memory.
  • Nathan was an accomplished alpine racer who took his own life in March 2018. At the time of his passing, a group of Nathan’s closest ski friends decided a race event would be the best way to celebrate his life because he was so passionate about skiing and smiled brightest on the slopes.

When is this year’s event?

  • The first annual race is taking place on March 17th, 2019 at Stratton Mountain. It is expected to attract approximately 250 racers from the Southern Vermont community along with their spectating parents, siblings and friends.

Why should you support this event?

  • The goal of this event is to have a fun, annual ski race that strengthens and builds community while celebrating Nathan’s life and his love for skiing. The event is also an opportunity to educate the community about teen suicide and ways to help.
  • Funds raised from the event will go to the Nathan M. Carreira Endowment Fund at the Stratton Foundation. The Stratton Foundation's mission is to assist local children, teens, and families in Southern Vermont, helping them meet basic human needs in order to live a safe and fulfilling life. Nathan's endowment is a branch of this foundation and has already positively impacted those in the Southern Vermont community by providing a suicide prevention training and education program to the public.
