Welcome to the Ski and Snowboard Team at Berkeley!
We are a group of skiers and snowboarders from the University of California, Berkeley that compete in the NorCal conference of USCSA against Stanford, UC Davis, University of Nevada, and Sierra Nevada College among others. We have both men’s and women’s teams in Alpine racing, Ski and Snowboard Freestyle, and Skier-X and Boarder-X.
We do not require potential members to try out or have prior competitive experience, but potential members should be experienced skiers or snowboarders and be passionate about their sport.
We hire an expert ski and snowboard coach every season and everyone improves tremendously. Competition and training is a large part of what we do, but there is plenty of time for freeskiing and earning GNAR points.
We get season passes every year; for 2017-2018 we will again be getting a discounted Gold pass to Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows. We are also renting a cabin in Tahoe Donner for the season right near the Davis and Stanford team cabins.
In the Fall we prepare for the season with optional dryland workouts and social events to get to know everybody on the team. During the last two weeks of winter break we will all live in Tahoe and ski Early every day and have the Times of our lives.
The Ski Team Motto:
Rule #1: Look good
Rule #2: Feel good
Rule #3: Safety third
