Afton Alps Alpine Club believes that alpine ski racing expands horizons and brings individuals and families together in ways that create meaningful shared experiences. We provide a pathway for opportunities in personal growth and accomplishment that will enrich our daily lives and create lasting valued lessons and memories.
Afton Alps Alpine Club has been saving and planning to upgrade our current facility to keep pace with our clubs growth for many years. Providing an improved and expanded facility for our area youth athletes while they utilize some of the best ski terrain in the Midwest will help to expand our reach to and visibility to the snow sports community. The planning of the new thoughtfully designed 2360 square foot facility (not including basement) is well underway. The new facility provides additional boot up/ dressing space for our athletes, a second level parent viewing and conference room, coaches’ office spaces, gate and equipment storage as well as a basement that could be used for a future exercise and tuning area, as well as additional storage. The modern building design features large viewing windows, durable exterior and interior materials that require little maintenance for many years of trouble free operation. The new facility is scheduled to begin construction in the spring of 2019.
With the generous help and support of our valued friends and members as well as strong community and corporate support, we hope to achieve our goal and make this great new facility a reality. We are well on our way, but we still need your help and fundraising is the catalyst of change.
