The U.S. Ski & Snowboard Alpine Masters had quite the week at the 2019 National Championships in Mammoth Mountain, CA. Masters racers participated in all 4 events, DH, SG, GS, and SL through all types of winter weather. Racers ranged in age from to 20 to 90 and came from all across North America. The weather, which was sunny and clear to start the week, later brought challenges via avalanche closures, wind, snow, and low visibility forcing scheduled adjustments and the cancellation of 2 of the 7 races. Not to be dismayed, racers made the most of the experience getting out for powder turns and spending the extra time catching up with friends over coffees and beers.
On the final night we surprised Bill Skinner with a retirement gift from contributions from Masters racers across the county. Thank you for all the enthusiasm and effort you brought to masters racing and for keeping us all racing for the last 20 years! We look forward to many more years racing with you!

It was an action packed 5 days of racing at Aspen Highlands, CO! With races in all 4 disciplines over the weekend, there were ample opportunities to challenge and hang out with your fellow competitors! We had 10 different countries represented: United States, Canada, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, Poland, Germany, France, and Japan!
On Saturday, February 9th we had an extra special celebration for Gaetano Demattei's 90th birthday! 7 of his 8 kids were present -- we shared stories from the past as well as heard about Gate's big plans for the next year - ski racing of course! Gate's infectious love for ski racing and life was felt by all - we thank you for sharing your 90th with us!

The 2019 Eastern Region Championships in Stratton, VT saw some tough weather and the cancellation of the SG. Not to be deterred, the Eastern Region Masters racers along with several visiting from the Canada Masters were able to throw down some great competition in the GS and SL to crown the 2019 Eastern Region Champions!
