About Us

Midwest Masters Mission Statement

To promote, sponsor, provide facilities for, and conduct a supervised program for adult alpine ski training, education and competition for adults for the purposes of improving their skills in the sport of alpine ski racing, teaching them the principles of good sportsmanship, and aiding in their physical and mental development; to provide education and training for alpine ski officials and other racing support personnel; and to generally promote the sport of amateur alpine ski racing and its goals.

Midwest Masters is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization established in 1999 with the mission of improving the experience for adult alpine ski racers in the Midwest. This is achieved by working directly with other grassroots adult leagues as well as by running its own unique events. Midwest Masters is a fully licensed and insured Club of the US Alpine Masters Division of US Ski & Snowboard, which is the official governing body of alpine ski racing in the United States. Midwest Masters serves the Central Division of US Ski & Snowboard which is composed of the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Events are hosted at a variety of ski areas throughout the Midwest, and participants range in age from 18 (and younger if a parent is also participating) to over 80 years old. Events Midwest Masters hosts follow US Ski & Snowboard rules and are sanctioned by US Alpine Masters and also NASTAR on occasion. Based upon the event, competitors compete with each other based upon Age Class and Ability Class. This allows racers to compete directly with those in their Age Group as well as those at their same Ability level. Midwest Masters also hosts training events and camps such as the annual Copper Mountain Masters Camp. In addition to running its own events, Midwest Masters works directly with other adult ski racing leagues to help with the execution of events hosted by those programs. Assistance provided by Midwest Masters in this regard relates to providing safety equipment, race crew personnel, course setting expertise, certified officials, timing and scoring capabilities, general consulting, or any combination of the above.
