Alpine Ski Racing is back at Western!

After a five year break, Western racers once again took to the slopes in the winter of 2014-2015 to recreate the once dominant Alpine Ski Team.  Western racers compete in the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA).

Alpine Racing has a glorious history in the Gunnison Valley and on the Western State Colorado University Campus.  The Mountain Sports Program is thrilled to be a part of the next page in The Alpine Ski Team’s dynamic story.

Western’s Alpine Ski Team is lead by former Western NCAA skier, Ciera Freson as head coach for 16-17.  With a strong group of young skiers, this season should be another giant step for the return to alpine greatness at Western. If you have questions regarding the program, please contact the Head Alpine Coach, Ciera Freson, at
