The Auburn Ski Club Training Center is a non-profit winter sports facility dedicated to the lifelong enjoyment of winter sports for families and athletes from the greater Foothill region, across Northern California and beyond. Programs and cross country ski trails are open to everyone. On winter weekends the center is alive with excited groups of Alpine, Snowboard, Nordic and Biathlon kids heading off for a day of skiing while rubbing shoulders with nationally ranked athletes and Olympians.
Our Training Center is one of the few combined Alpine, Nordic, Biathlon and Snowboard training centers in the country. The training center blends together an atmosphere of national caliber athletes, family recreational skiing and international level competition. As the top racing and training venue in the western United States, ASCTC was named USSA Nordic Club of the Year in 2001 and 2005 and Snowboard Club of the Year in 2010. ASCTC has hosted many national championships including: XC Junior Nationals in 1971, 2005, 2009, 2015; the 2004 NCAA Nationals and 2015 US Biathlon Nationals.
