Sugarbush Racing Club

Discovering new friends, fun racing, friendly rivalries and great parties!

For over 40 years, the Sugarbush Racing Club has been the place for people of all ages to make friends, connect with friends and join people who have similar interests. We have numerous ski-related activities, including Alpine racing for the full range of skills and ages from the fast and furious, to the person who has never raced but always wanted to try it. We usually have 8 races a year, conditions permitting. Then there are the social activities, which run all year round (see below) and offer a chance to get together off the slopes. Visit our membership page for more information on how to join the SRC and add a new dimension to your skiing and snowboarding fun!

When and where

Unfortunately Sugarbush cancelled NASTAR racing for 2024 due to inability to meet NASTAR standards because of lack of availability of qualified personnel. Howeve, our race committee has managed to arrange for several non-NASTAR races at Sugarbush and a clinic at Cochran’s. See our racing page for more information on how you can get in on all the racing fun. Post-race parties usually take place on Thursdays at 4:00 pm at one of the great Valley restaurants. See the calendar page for up-to-date race schedules and party locations where you’ll enjoy good company, complimentary hors d’oeuvres, great door prizes, printed race results and if possible, a video of the day’s races.

Who’s racing

Some of our members have been racing every week for decades, while others have discovered us more recently. Our members are all ages, from folks in their twenties to nineties! At one end of the spectrum, we have some serious racers, “The Suits”, who always go for broke in skin-tight outfits. At the other end of the spectrum, you’ll find people racing who have very little experience in the gates but race just for the sheer joy of it. Everyone is welcome!

And partying…

SRC offers a variety of great social activities throughout the year. These include our 8-10 weekly après-ski parties, a winter dance, spring banquet, a dinner and movie night, gift-drawings, plus other “pop -up” events that are announced as the season proceeds. Come summer, there’s a golf outing, Fall BBQ, pickleball contests and sometimes a Saint-Patrick’s Day extravaganza, plus canoe and biking events. Not all club members race, but few would miss these events!  The club also supports non-club Valley events.Check our social page for a complete list of events.
