Pitt Ski and Snowboard Team 2018

Who We Are: 

We are the Pitt Ski and Snowboard Team, a competitive club sport at the University of Pittsburgh and member of The United States Collegiate Ski and Snowboard Association. Our team consists of undergraduate students sharing a passion for skiing and snowboarding. The season consists of five weekends of competitions followed by regionals and nationals. Our team is dedicated in school and every competition.

Our Project:

Participating in competitive skiing and snowboarding allows us to continue our love for the sport while traveling to various mountains in Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia and more while making connections with other schools. Our goal this year is to qualify for nationals, which is hosted by Jackson Hole. Consequently, we need to raise money to fund our regular and post season events.

Our primary funding comes from dues and small allocations from the university. Travel, lodging, competition fees, and other miscellaneous costs become enormous expenses that are not easily supported without significantly increasing team member dues. We are asking for your help in raising funds to cover these costs.


How You Can Help:

Any donation of any size helps tremendously. Even just a quick share to your friends, family or on social media makes a great impact. Thank you for supporting the Pitt Ski and Snowboard Team!   

If you would like more information or have any questions please feel free to contact our president, Casey Wakeen, at
