Team Summit was formed in the early 70’s as the Summit Skiing and Educational Foundation. Its purpose was to sponsor a team of young alpine skiers age 14 and older who wanted to pursue intensive training and achieve higher goals in alpine skiing than were available through the Summit School system.
The four Summit County ski areas: Copper Mountain, Keystone, Breckenridge, and Arapahoe Basin were the initial backers of the team and continue to lend strong support, both financially and logistically today.
In 1990, the Board of Directors decided to expand the scope of activities of Summit Skiing and Educational Foundation to include a broader age range for alpine skiers, the Summit High School Varsity Ski Team, and a competitive snowboard team. “Team Summit” was the original name given to the snowboard training and in the late 90s the Summit Skiing and Educational Foundation name was officially changed to “Team Summit” -ski and snowboard club when the Copper Mountain Race Team and Summit Race Team combined.
Now, Team Summit Colorado aims to serve athletes long after their competitive careers have ended in skiing and snowboarding. Our goal is to elevate youth through winter sports.
