Ski racing at Red Mountain for over 120 years
Founded in 1947, the Red Mountain Racers is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the development of Alpine Ski Racing from entry-level ages to Masters in all disciplines including Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super G, Downhill and Ski Cross.? Ski racing at Red Mountain goes back before the inception of the Red Mountain Racers, to the first Canadian Championships in 1898.
Over the years, Red has punched well above its weight, sending a large number of racers to the BC and Canadian alpine ski teams and to NCAA college scholarships, and developing foundation skills to transfer to ski cross and free skiing competition.? Equally as important, the coaches have developed hundreds of powder-loving children who have built solid skills and friendships for a lifetime, and brought their passion for skiing into adulthood.
We have a talented and enthusiastic group of Canadian Ski Coach Federation [CSCF] trained and certified coaches whose positive results have led to the RMR program being one of the best in Canada. The RMR has strong partnerships with Red Mountain Resort, Legacy Training Centre, Red Mountain Academy, and BC Alpine. We are a member of both the BC Alpine Ski Association and Alpine Canada, and compete under the rules of the International Ski Federation (FIS).
