The Taft ski team is a member of the highly competitive Brigham Ski League, which includes teams from Trinity-Pawling, Suffield Academy, Ethel Walker, Loomis Chaffee, Berkshire School, Salisbury School, The Gunnery, Avon, Forman School, and Miss Porter’s. It also competes in the New England Prep School Class B Alpine Ski Championships held at various ski areas in New England. The team practices at Ski Sundown in New Hartford, CT, and races at Ski Sundown, Butternut Basin in Great Barrington, MA, and Mohawk Mountain Ski Area in Cornwall, CT. The program emphasizes skiing and racing technique, with skiers competing in slalom and giant slalom. All of our incoming skiers are strong skiers and many have racing experience.
