Beginning in the 2015-16 season, the Brunswick Alpine Ski Team continues to post remarkable results. The program uses experienced ski racers and expert skiers looking for an accelerated introduction to the sport. In 2016-17, the squad finished second at the NEPSAC Class B Championships, while winning numerous team races during the regular season.
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 ski season, weekly on-snow training will be scheduled, 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 Championship.
Brunswick skiers Jose Riera and William Kallman were named All-State by the Connecticut Interscholastic Ski League. Both skiers also earn a place on Team Connecticut, an all-star squad that raced in the Eastern Ski Championship against programs from 11 other states earlier this month.
Jose Riera raced to the individual title at the 2019 CISL State Open Championship on Tuesday at Mount Southington. Riera, a winner of two regular-season CISL races earlier this year, posted the fastest times in each of the two runs to take home the first-place trophy by a comfortable margin.
