WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT

COMMITMENT TO IMPROVING RACERS

The Flagstaff Ski Club is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The Flagstaff Alpine Ski & Snowboard Team (“FAST”), a program of the Flagstaff Ski Club, was established in 1967. Since then, it has grown in scope and size and now serves more than 130 young male and female athletes from ages 6 to 18.

FAST represents the third through fifth in a series of steps as outlined by the United States Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) in a developmental system for alpine racers. FAST is dedicated to the training of young athletes to improve their techniques, to race training and to providing racing opportunities for members of USSA. FAST belongs to the Rocky Mountain Division of USSA and competes in Southern Series races.

Primary funding of FAST comes from dues and fees charged to members. Further income is generated through donations, race events and annual fundraising events. A tremendous commitment must be made by the parents who are asked to volunteer at racing and fundraising events as well as giving moral support and the necessary sacrifice of time and money to support their athlete.

The Arizona Snowbowl is the biggest supporter of Team FAST. The Snowbowl provides many services at no charge to the Team. We are grateful for the support of the staff and the owners and strongly support snowmaking on the San Francisco Peaks to improve the season at the Arizona Snowbowl for our members and all winter enthusiasts.

Snow sports can be expensive… but our racing programs are not! Our intent is to keep program fees to a minimum while maintaining a top-caliber coaching staff. Flagstaff Alpine Ski & Snowboard Team athletes receive outstanding coaching, competitive with other race programs in the Rocky Mountain Division. We are committed to the development of healthy and well conditioned young people.

Our Goals
To Provide a safe environment while having fun and learning fundamental ski & snowboard skills.
To promote development of healthy and well conditioned young people.
To help develop disciplined and committed young athletes.
To make ski racing and snowboarding available to a broad cross-section of families in our community.
