The Windham Race Factory is the premier ski race training program in the Catskills. It was started in 1971 and has been developing ski racers at all levels since then. We help young people become great skiers and spectacular human beings. We provide a fun, safe environment for our children to improve their skiing and ski racing skills while experiencing the joy of the sport and meeting others who have a similar passion.

“I Think there is more to ski racing than just ski racing.
It teaches young athletes and young people how to persevere in life. There are life long skills you are building out here and life long friendships”

Chip Cochrane, Maine Skier Hall of Fame

"The key to my success at Buck Hill is repetition," Sailer said. "Freeskiing isn't the key to racing, but rather repetition because it creates muscle memory. This is
a theory that has been proven over and over again.
