Alpine Officials

Hi VARA Coaches and Officials, 

Thanks to many of you for reaching out about the upcoming schedule of Alpine Officials updates.  Alpine skiing is pretty unique in that it requires pretty much all of us to officiate in some capacity during the year.  I definitely appreciate that people are getting on board with attending updates.

Below is the link to the Eastern AO Clinic Schedule:

A few important points:
•This is an evolving document.  We're about 75% of the way to completion right now.  Please check back to see if anything has changed before you get in your car and drive a long way.

•All U.S. Ski and Snowboard members can attend any clinic anywhere in the US, including the Eastern Region clinics (Sunapee 11/4), Colorado for November campers, or the FIS update at Orford 10/26-28.  It all counts.  We have been getting better at sharing attendance records across division boundaries.  Please make sure that if you are a VARA official attending an update outside of VARA that you let the clinic presenter know that, and you also shoot me an email.

•RSVP is required for the Coaches Education Seminar and the Hands-On Timing Clinics.

•RSVP is NOT required for regular AO updates and RF1 tests.

Thanks again for everything you do to keep ski racing 1st in Vermont and Vermont ski racers 1st in the world.  None of this is possible without lots of adults getting out there on lots of cold winter days.
