What is MAST?
The Minneapolis Alpine Ski Team (MAST) is open to 7-12 graders attending Minneapolis Public Schools who want to learn to ski race. Our home ski area is Hyland Ski and Snowboard Area (HSSA) in Bloomington. Training is also held at Welch Village, Wild Mountain, and Giants Ridge. Races are scheduled at various ski areas around Minnesota.
Alpine ski racing is challenging, fun and exciting. Benefits include physical conditioning, friendly competition, and the development of skiing skills that will last a lifetime. Here is a summary of things prospective racers and their parents may want to know about the team and ski racing:
- The MAST coaching staff is led by Head Coaches Mark Conway and Daniel Polland, and Assistant Coaches Joel Hedrick, Daniel Haberman, Matthew Polland, and Jack Strand.
- Additionally, MAST athletes benefit from the time and energy of a large and experienced staff of volunteer coaches.
- All the coaches work hard to maximize skill development for all athletes and to teach safe skiing habits and maintain safe training environments at all times.
