About


The Virginia Alpine Ski and Snowboard Team (VASST) at the University of Virginia is a ski/snowboard club that's all for good times and snow; though you'll find there is a whole lot more to us than that.  All students are welcome to join, there are no tryouts or skill level requirement!  We average 300 members every year, making us the largest (and gnarliest) club sport organization at UVA.  During the season, we go to Wintergreen Resort every Tuesday and Thursday, but save the weekends for competitions and free-ski trips. Additionally, we organize two teamwide trips every year: one over Winter Break to Sunday River, Maine, and the other during Spring Break to various resorts out West (Past trips have included Park City, Jackson Hole, Telluride, Big Sky, and Aspen).  However, things are not quiet in the off-season; VASST hosts numerous social events throughout the year.  Our activity in the University community and beyond has made us one of the most social groups at UVA.  All of this makes VASST unlike any other organization around, just let us show you.

Racing


We belong to the United States Collegiate Skiing Association (USCSA), and our racers compete in events during the Spring Semester. Our Conference is the, USCSA Southeast Conference, which is part of the USCSA Mid-Atlantic Region.

Skiing:
Alpine: Slalom, Giant Slalom (GS)
Freestyle: Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Skiercross

Snowboarding:
Alpine: Giant Slalom (GS)
Freestyle: Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Boardercross

Racers do not have to compete in all of the events in their discipline, but they can participate in as many events and as many disciplines as they desire.

Racing is by no means required! About 75 members of VASST participate each year.  However, if you are interested in racing it is highly encouraged and a great way to get more involved with the team.  Experience is absolutely not an issue, only one member of Exec raced before college!  If you'd like to race, ask the Captain of your respective discipline for more information or about any questions you may have.
