The Brunswick Alpine Ski Team will combine experienced ski racers and expert skiers looking for an accelerated introduction to the sport. The program is based off of other successful small-mountain programs. This training program produced more U.S. Ski Team members and Olympic medalists than any other in North America.
During the season, weekly on-snow training will be scheduled for Wednesday afternoons, while dry-land training will be conducted at the King Street Campus. The team will travel to Mt. Southington for regular-season races.
As a member of both the Connecticut Interscholastic Ski Association and the NEPSAC, racers will be able to qualify for both the Connecticut State Championship and the NEPSAC Class B Championship.
Brunswick placed three skiers in the top 10, as the Bruins (5-1) topped Darien, Fairfield, and Gilbert at Mt. Southington on January 12. Nick Blum won the overall event with a two-race time of 43.24 seconds, while teammate Ethan Hynes came in second place, just .63 seconds behind Blum.
