Join the Ski Ward Race Team!

The Ski Ward Race Team (SWRT) is a family-oriented recreational racing program for ages 5-18, offering kids of all levels and abilities a great opportunity to improve their skiing, meet new friends, and compete in the Eastern Mass Buddy Werner League of Alpine ski racing.


The mission of the SWRT is to encourage the joys of skiing and the life-long lessons of healthy competition and sportsmanship. The team achieves its mission by providing thoughtful and professional ski and race instruction through its experienced coaches.

SWRT races out of Ski Ward Ski Area in Shrewsbury, MA, and competes in slalom and giant slalom races against various teams across Eastern and Central Massachusetts. Most practices are Friday nights at Ski Ward, beginning in December. Races are Sunday mornings at Ski Ward, Nashoba Valley, Bradford, and Blue Hills ski areas. Races begin the second Sunday in January, and conclude with a Championship race the first Sunday in March.


Registration for the 2017-18 season will begin on October 10th. Limited spots are available, so plan to register early. Cost is $285 per child for child 1&2, with a discount for any additional children. Racers over the age of 15 (and in High School) are only $110! Each racer requires a Ski Ward season pass or lift ticket to attend practices and races at Ski Ward. All new racers will be eligible to purchase season passes at the original early bird discount price. Off-site races require purchase of individual lift tickets from applicable race sites.
