n the Central Division, Midwest Masters represents U.S. Ski & Snowboard as the only Masters alpine club and hosts all Masters alpine racing in the Midwest. The Central Division consists of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Missouri. We are an open, volunteer, not-for-profit organization and welcome all who wish to participate. Events are hosted at a variety of ski areas throughout the Midwest. Racers range in age from 18 to over 80 years old. Races follow U.S. Ski & Snowboard rules, with some adjustments per Midwest Masters. Based upon the race, competitors compete based on age class and/or ability class. This allows racers to compete directly with those in their age group as well as those at their ability level.
