Colorado Masters Training Programs for Never-Ever Racer?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hi all --

 

I'm Denver-based and a 35+ year skier that has never raced, but have debated joining the Masters Racing fun for a number of years.  This may be the year I actually can swing it, and I am debating which of the many available Masters training programs are worth considering for a 46 year old with no previous racing experience.  Anyone have suggestions for particular programs that I should consider?

 

Thanks,

 

Bob

There are lots of options, but Eldora is where I train, and I'd recommend it...PM me if you want more info...

Eldora is the closest Masters Race Training to Denver. At Loveland Ski Area the SwissAm training program is available. I personally enjoy training at the Copper Mountain Masters Program. Each of these would be fine for a new Racer. Information is available online for each of these programs.

It depends on where in the Denver area you are. If you are closer to Boulder or Coal Creek canyon then Eldora may be closer. If you are nearer to Denver then Loveland is closer. I train at Loveland but I live in Boulder and Have a Condo in Georgetown. Eldora, Copper, and Loveland-Swissam all have good progrms. Winter Park has a program also but I don't know much about it. I highly recommend trying out Masters Racing. I doesn't matter how proficient you are, it is just great fun all around.

Thanks to everyone for your responses.  It sounds as though most of the local programs have happy members.  I'll start narrowing down based on scheduling and drive times.  Thanks again!
