Graduating seniors and post PG year racers,
ski racing is alive and well at the University of Nevada. Are you looking
to continue your ski racing after High School? If you would like to
continue to ski and race in the Northern Sierra's, you should take a good look

is steeped in tradition. Currently we compete in the USCSA conference,
and we will qualify both a Men and Women's teams to a highly competitive
national championship. The UNR Winter Sports Club, which conducts UNR
skiing, is funded through several sources, additional to its ASUN support,
funding sources include: a Foundation endowment, long standing booster
organization, and ski swap. These funds go toward a seasonal full time paid
coach, training space, assists the athletes travel expenses and funds equipment
for training. Additionally, we have several endowed memorial scholarships
that assist current team members with tuition costs. Our race team is on
snow 5 days a week for structured training and races. As a student driven club
sport we welcome all interested participants, but we are looking for
athletes with FIS backgrounds who would like to continue their ski racing
experiences in an educational setting and to strengthen this team.
