Our Race Schedule for the current season has been updated.  The SARA Board and member mountains have been hard at work to plan for the season in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and related guidance from US Ski & Snowboard, host mountains and state and local authorities.  This season won't look the same as past seasons, but with everyone's understanding, it will still be SARA racing - fast skiing on southern mountains!

Important Notes on the Race Schedule:

NEW INFORMATION:  The two races previously scheduled to be held at Wintergreen on Martin Luther King Day and Presidents Day have been RESCHEDULED for the weekend of February 20-21.  This will provide SARA racers with another full weekend racing opportunity just prior to the SARA championships events.

Unfortunately, all SARA races scheduled to be held at Snowshoe this season have been CANCELLED by decision of the host mountain.  As one of these events was scheduled to be the WV Qualifier for U16-21 athletes, stay tuned here for further information regarding the implications of this decision.

Please note that the race originally scheduled at Timberline, WV for February 20-21, 2021 has been CANCELLED.
