RACING
Weekend OVSC Racing


Inter-Club racing with the OVSC clubs. Three or four races every weekend beginning in January. Most are "recreational racers" just having fun, so don't be intimidated by all the speed suits... You will get points for your team if you just make it through both runs, so everyone is important! Races will be mostly GS with an occasional slalom format, depending on the formats selected by the host Club. To participate on the CSC Race Team you may either join for the season or pick and choose your races at a small per race rate. You must be a member of CSC (or some other OVSC Club) to participate in these weekend racing events when they are not also a public race.

Join the CSC Race Team!

It's a great way to improve your skiing, challenge yourself and have some fun.

There are two options to join.
Join the CSC team for full season ($15) or pay $5 for each day raced (with prearrangement to make sure you have a bib and are in the database)
Adults 21 and over must be a member of the CSC (Cinci) before joining the Race team (see our Membership Page )
JOIN THE RACE TEAM
Pay $15  plus a refundable $10 race bib deposit (keep the bib for any number of seasons) and enjoy a full season membership to the race team.
JUNIORS (under 21)
If you are under 21, and your parents are not CSC club members, we offer a junior race team membership for $15 without requiring the parents to join the club just so the kids can race with us.  If the parents want to join the club as full members that is great too.

BENEFITS OF RACE TEAM MEMBERSHIP
  • Membership on CSC Race Team authorizes you to race in all OVSC races. As a race team member, your results will be calculated and if you participate in 4 races, you qualify to be in the running for the awards and prizes at the end of the season.
  • COOL CSC red stretch race bib fits over jacket or outside a ski suit (we have mediums and large)
  • Mentoring by our experienced racers. We love helping new racers learn this fun sport so just ask any team member for any help or advise you need. Contact either race chairman and let us know when you plan to race and we will be sure someone is looking out for you to show you the ropes, offer tips, maybe even throw some wax on your skis.
  • Motivates you to get in shape!  The better shape you are in, the less you will crash so that motivates you to show up in good physical shape.  Ski racing at a high level requires strong leg muscles, strong balance muscles, and strong core.  Arms and shoulders are also important on our short courses to get a good push out of the gate. Regularly stretching the leg muscles  helps prevent injury. 
  • Cool photo awards and prizes at our awards meeting in April.
  • All our GS and Slalom races qualify as NASTAR races  and are submitted to NASTAR,com so you can possibly qualify  to race at regional and national Nastar events and see your ranking by resort, age group,  statewide and nationally.  * First time race team members should go to NASTAR.com and signup for an account to get a registration number  that you will need to supply us on the race team application.  Nastar registration numbers are always the first 3 letters of your last name followed by numbers. Mine is BRO601,  our fastest club racer, Rick Mygrant is MYG1.
In addition to the CSC race team fee, you are responsible for lift tickets (we  usually get a discount rate for some races) and possible small race fees charged by the ski area.
