Welcome to Parks Ski Team.
Parks Junior Ski Race Club is a non-profit organization run by parents and governed by ByLaws. Our goal as a club is to provide a safe and fun ski racing and training environment to skiers between the ages of 5 and 18. This includes novice and experienced skiers who seek to improve their skiing and confidence. Skiers must be able to ride the chairlift by themselves.
Parks provides expert coaching during the evening with on-course training and guidance. We provide a low athlete to coach ratio. December brings opening day at Sunburst Ski Area in Kewaskum. This is our home course for training. All racers should buy a season pass to Sunburst. An early season (August) special is usually offered.
Racers train one to three nights per week (Monday, Tuesday and/or Wednesday) starting at 6:30pm. All athletes are enrolled in the Wisconsin Junior Racing Program (WJR). Races are held locally at one of the five southeastern Wisconsin ski areas on six Saturdays from January through early March. We also offer the Central Division U.S. Ski Association (CUSSA) experience for racers that desire added competition. These races are held throughout Wisconsin and Upper Michigan on weekends.
Our High School program is for those racers wanting an extra night of training - they do not belong to WJR or CUSSA and train with the club on Monday only.
