Each year since 1936 the Metropolitan New York Ski Council has run an annual ski and inter-club racing competition.
The competition, which features both alpine and snowboard races, is normally held during the later part of January.
To ensure good participation, five events are offered: Main, Intermediate, Junior, Husband & Wife, and Snowboard.
The competition draws serious racers and not so serious racers alike and offers a wonderful opportunity for members
of the Council's clubs to meet, to compete, to ski together and to celebrate at the après ski party where medals are
awarded and tentative trophy winner results are announced.
The competition is open to anyone who has been a member of a Metropolitan New York Ski Council club since
January 1st of the year of the race, who is a bonafide amateur, who meets the eligibility requirements of the event
entered, and who abides by the rules. Each year the following prized trophies are engraved and passed to
the winners or to the winners' clubs.

First Intermediate Event Junior Team - Herbert Schneider Trophy
Fastest Giant Slalom Skier - Harry W. Voege Trophy
