The Bradford Christian Academy Ski Team competes in both the Giant Slalom (GS) and Slalom (SL) alpine disciplines. These are considered the “technical” events because the have more and quicker turns than either Super G or Downhill (the speed events.) We compete in NEPSAC as a “Class C” team for the Championships and race during the year in the Central Massachusetts Ski League (CMSL) at Wachusett Mountain each Friday. The 2017 race season is the second year for the team. We practice with the Bradford Ski Team (BST) at Ski Bradford in Haverhill on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:30 until 8:30 pm.
