Alpine Skiing

The Minnehaha alpine ski team is open to girls and boys in grades 7 through 12. Our team focuses on skill improvement, teamwork and fun. We have a great range of abilities from experienced USSA racers to first-time racers. We begin the season in November with dryland training and start skiing as soon as the snow arrives. We practice three times a week at Hyland Hill ski area. Our racing season runs from late December to mid-February.


Brad Schaeppi, Head Coach

Home games: All Tri-Metro Conference races are held at Buck Hill. In addition, we compete in a number of non-conference races, including Invitational races where we compete against many schools throughout Minnesota. The non-conference races are held at various ski areas in Minnesota.
JV: Both varsity and JV teams race in all of the conference races and several of the non-conference races. A JV Conference Championship race is held at the end of the season.
The official season begins: the second week of November with dryland training until the snow comes.
The season generally ends: in mid-February
