Racing


The Danbury Ski Club has some of the best racers in Connecticut and typically finishes among the State's top clubs in several categories. The DSC Team participates in racing events and clinics throughout the season:

  1. CSC Monday night racing at Mt. Southington, registration is until 7:00
  2. Connecticut State Races including Slalom, Giant Slalom, Downhill, and Cross-Country
  3. CSC Winter Carnival
  4. DSC On-Snow Day

All skiing abilities are welcome and you don't need any racing experience. So why not give it a try? Monday Night Racing and our Annual Race Clinic are two great ways to start. For more information about racing for the Danbury Ski Club, contact our race chairman Dave Kiley, dave.kiley@gmail.com
