In January and February, our skiers and boarders race slalom, giant slalom, and skier/boarder cross through the United States Collegiate Ski Association (USCSA). We are currently the only college ski and snowboard race team in Ohio, but our officers are working hard to help other schools put a team together. Our race weekends offer a chance to compete against each other, spend time together as a team, get to know riders from other schools, get to know areas of Ohio and Michigan outside of the Columbus area, and work on our skiing and boarding skills. We invite riders of all levels to race, and of course non-racers are welcome to come to our race weekends too, as racing is not a requirement to be considered a member of Ohio State Ski and Board Team (although we do recommend it as it happens to be a kickass time).
