Welcome!

Hello and welcome to the Wilson and Central Catholic (W&CC) Ski Team website.  Please note that many of our successful racers have not raced before they joined the W&CC ski team.  Compared to ski area lessons, the W&CC ski team represents an excellent value, with top notch training and coaching.  If you want to be an advanced or expert skier for life, joining the W&CC ski team is a tremendous opportunity.  The skiing portion of our season starts as soon as the snow flies on Mt. Hood.  (The Fusion ski pass - which is a season pass to both Ski Bowl and Timberline - is a good value to enable skiing regardless of the weather.)  Dryland training begins in November, and is a critical part of being ready to ski your best and avoid injuries this year. Our mountain training typically starts after Thanksgiving.  During the month of December we offer a variety of practice schedules which include a weekend trip to White Pass, WA.  We typically take a Raz bus to our Wednesday night training sessions at Ski Bowl. However, these do not typically start until January. Our Racing season begins in January.  We typically race every Saturday from January until the 3 week in February. Typically league races are held at Mt. Hood Ski Bowl, Timberline, and Mt. Hood Meadows.  The State Championships follow the regular season and occur the first week in March.
