The Attitash Race team is a nonprofit alpine race club that trains 8 to 14 year old athletes at Attitash/Bear Peak during the winter ski season. AAEF is a board run, all volunteer organization with its own membership, hires its own coaching staff, and operates races and fund raising events to support the Attitash Race Team. Many of our racers have gone on to successful racing careers in college and beyond. Many have also returned to our program as parents of new racer or coaches (or both). Through the Attitash Alpine Education Foundation it also provides financial aid and scholarship opportunities for their racers.
