What is Buddy Werner League?

Buddy Werner was an internationally renowned alpine ski racer who was a member of the Olympic Alpine Team in 1956, 1960 and 1964. Buddy was America's first true world class ski racer. A native of Steamboat Springs, Buddy had a breakneck style which caused spectacular spills, but also enabled him to win virtually every championship available during his mercurial career.

What is Buddy Werner League?

When Buddy wasn't racing, he would gather up the local youth and bring them to the mountain to teach them about ski racing. The Buddy Werner Race League pays tribute to his legend by providing a recreational race program that strengthens young skiers grades 2nd - 8th. Participants will have the opportunity to ski with volunteer coaches and others in their age group and ability level for ten days in Beaver Creek.

What is Buddy Werner League?

Seven of our ski days are all-mountain days with some race training and skills building and three days will be devoted to racing. The top 50 skiers will also go to the Western Slope Buddy Werner Race in March to ski against skiers from Sunlight, Powderhorn and Steamboat BWLs.  BWRL’s goal is to be an affordable, high-quality ski and race program for all area residents.
