It is official! Once again, Midwest Masters will be joining with Rocky Mountain Masters for the annual Shin Tuck Showdown in January 2023. Come on out and join us for loads of fun, lots of vertical, and to help retain the coveted Shin Tuck Trophy in the Midwest this year!

When: Weds, Jan 11 - Sun Jan 15
Where: Ski Cooper, Colorado

Wednesday: "Speed Fundamentals" Camp
Thursday: Coached timed runs
Friday: Official DH training runs
Saturday: 2DH
Sunday: Super-G and SL

Ski Cooper is the perfect venue for both the first-time “I wanna try it!” speedsters and those who are already hooked on speed and want more. There is high-quality coaching, plentiful practice runs available for the speed camps and training, plus this event is the best value in ski racing.

Lots of vertical to be had! We did some math and determined that the number of speed runs at this event is about 118 runs down Milk Run at Buck Hill! This equates to over 8 YEARS of racing Ski Challenge at Buck Hill... in only 4+ days at Ski Cooper!
(Note: The Rocky Mountain Ski Cooper Fact Sheet is still being finalized. Watch for the latest updates to be shared soon on the Midwest Masters Facebook page!)

The updated fact sheet will have all details on the entire event including lift ticket pricing. YOUR BUCK HILL PASS PROVIDES 3 DAYS OF LIFT TICKETS AT SKI COOPER!

REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN on the ASR site. Go to Event Signup under Rocky Mountain Masters for DH training (Speed Fundamentals Camp, Timed Speed Camp, and A Racer’s Edge Downhill official Training) and all of the DH, SG & SL races.
Note: The races are organized by the Rocky Mountain Division and the cost structure is different from Midwest Masters.
Current Snow Report:
This year is looking to be on track to provide excellent race conditions once again with a base of 24” so far and more on the way.  

DISCOUNTED LODGING with Midwest Masters Is Available!
This is one of the best bang-for-your-buck events you can find in ski racing! We have rented The Abbey; an entire house located in downtown Leadville with lots of room this year!

  • 6 nights starting 1/10/23, checking out 1/16/23
  • 11 bedrooms (14 beds total)
  • 7 bathrooms

Depending on the number of participants, however, if there are at least 10 people staying in the Abbey, the daily cost would run around $80/night per person.
