Lees-McRae has recently brought back the ski & snowboard program after being dormant for nearly a decade. The team travels all over the south and mid-atlantic regions competing in both race and freestyle disciplines at several different resorts. This past year some of the athletes qualified for Nationals and traveled up to Lake Placid, NY to compete against student-athletes from all across the country at Whiteface Mountain.
Three nearby mountain resorts -- Beech, Sugar and Appalachian Ski Mountain -- offer the opportunity to spend winter on the slopes. All three ski resorts offer challenging runs and host collegiate ski events throughout the winter. Join the Lees-McRae Ski and Snowboard club and hone your skills with other athletes and a coach! The club is a member of the Southeast Conference in the US Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association (USCSA).
