About the Program

65 years ago the Bogus Basin School Race Program was built with 3 things in mind: provide a safe environment for competition on the slopes; encourage students to represent and compete for their school in a lifetime sports activity; and provide a level of competition in which the maximum number of students can participate.

Over the years, Bogus Basin has expanded the School Race Program to include downhill, freestyle and Nordic events for athletes of all levels; many students compete in multiple events. Participants are eligible for lift ticket and rental equipment discounts, and additional financial assistance is available for those who qualify. The program relies upon the support of over 150 volunteer advisors, most are school teachers who promote it at their schools and spend their Saturdays assisting with the races and other events, including the Snow Dance Party, and St. Luke’s helmet decorating contest.
