Minneapolis Alpine Ski Team (MAST) is open to Minneapolis Public School students in grades 7 through 12 who would like to be part of a MPS high school alpine ski team. All ability levels are welcome. Learn to ski. Learn to race.
MAST 2020-21 Season
The MAST coaches and board of directors are working hard to plan for the 2020-21 alpine season, knowing that the pandemic will not be over and that we will need to do many things differently going forward. To help with our planning, we would like to hear from those who would like to join MAST for the 2020-21 season. If you will be entering grades 7 through 12 this fall at a Mpls public school and are interested in learning more about MAST, we invite you to fill out a short form. This will not only get you on our mailing list, but will help us out greatly as we plan for our 21st season of high school alpine racing.

Fall Mental Training
When you are busy all winter splitting your time between skiing and studying, there is little time left over to to keep up with all the ski racing video that is posted on the internet. There are many sites that offer excellent technical and tactical insights into the sport. Fall is a great time to study our sport in great depth. And if you need a dose of inspiration to get outside and work on your strength and conditioning, perhaps a few minutes watching some world class skiing will do the trick.
Visit our Mental Training Page for links to helpful videos related to ski racing and peak performance.
