The Muskoka Ski Club offers a strong development program for all of our alpine athletes. We do this by being progressive in our training methods and combining sound skill development (based on the principles of Alpine Canada’s Long Term Athlete and Skier Development model) with socialization and fun. Our coaches are trained and certified by the CSCF, CSIA, CFA and participate in annual technical and educational updates.

** Please note a significant change in fee payment this year. Alpine Ontario is collecting their fees directly through an online payment service which will be available in November.**

Your annual Muskoka Ski Club race fees continue to be paid directly to the club.
