Woodstock Ski Runners was founded in 1932 and is the oldest ski club In the Eastern United States. All of the kids, and most their parents, make lifetime friendships through Ski Runners. Come join us!
Dear Ski Runner Families,
It is with profound sadness that we share the news of Jim Kelly's passing this past Sunday. Jim is a legend in the Ski Runners community: a longtime member, dedicated race volunteer, and former Vice President of the club.
Jim's family will be hosting a memorial visitation at the Cabot Funeral Home in Woodstock, VT Friday, September 13, from 5-7 pm. A memorial service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, September 14, at St. James Episcopal Church, Woodstock, VT followed by a reception at Suicide Six.
More information is included at the link below. Jim was a great man, husband, father, and friend. We will greatly miss his warm smile and unwavering enthusiasm for skiing, Suicide 6, and the Ski Runners Family.

The first day of Dry-land training for the alpine programs is Sunday, November 3. We’d like all parents to join us for an orientation session while the kids are out hiking Suicide 6. This is your opportunity to ask questions about your child’s program, gear, ski tuning or even trade that pair of ski pants that do not fit anymore. Then we will fire up the grill and celebrate the coming season. We’ll provide basic grill items like burgers, dogs, buns and condiments, but we’d love our membership to bring a snack, side or dessert to share. If you are new to the club, this is a great opportunity to meet other families and learn what makes Ski Runners so special!
Mikaela Shiffrin and the best women in the world are returning to Killington! They’ll be racing GS on Saturday and SL on Sunday. Many Ski Runners families attended the race last year and had a great time. There will be a parade for the kids, so stay tuned for further details. Who wants to organize the tailgate?
The FISK Trophy Race is the longest consecutively-running FIS race in the United States. Some of the best men in the country, including current and former U.S. Ski Team members will test their SL skills on The Face at Suicide Six.
On Sunday, February 25, it’s the U12s turn to race for glory on The Face at the Suicide 6 Stubby SL. What’s a stubby? It’s a hinged SL gate that’s only about 24 inches tall. The kids “shin” these gates as they learn to make fast, clean slalom turns. Come out and support the home team!
Come out and cheer Ski Runners youngest members enjoying themselves in this fun all-mountain competition. The Alpine Devo, All-Mountain, and U10 groups will ski one race run, one mogul run, and one terrain park run for one overall score. We'll be hosting similar groups from Pico, Ford Sayre, Quechee and more for this super fun day. Awards will be given to the top 3 girl and boy finishers in each age group.
One of the rites of Spring at Suicide Six, the Slush Cup is an open USSA stubby slalom race for U8-U12s. It can be a young U8s first race and also a U12s last one as a U12. The sun shines, we make slushies for the kids, and everyone has a great day.
Race The Face signals the end of the official Ski Runners season, and we make sure our annual club race is a great time for everyone. In a parallel GS, the kids race against each other, brothers race sisters, parents race each other, parents race their kids, the dog races the cat. The kids wear costumes. You get the idea. There’s no timing. Today is all about fun and celebrating the season as a team!
