Overview

Crabbe Mountain is located in central New Brunswick close to Fredericton, Woodstock, and Nackawick. Crabbe offers the highest ski elevation in the Maritime provinces and consistent snowfall and snowmaking. With minimal lift lines, a welcoming attitude toward alpine race athletes, and a friendly vibe Crabbe is a great place to become a skier and ski racer.

Crabbe Mountain Race Club trains primarily at Crabbe. Within our small club we have a great wealth of coaching expertise, athlete energy, and skiing passion. Training can vary from 1 to 4 days per week with pre-, mid-, and post-season camps available depending on the aspirations of the athlete. Our Club welcomes all passionate skiers wanting to improve their skills through the Alpine Canada training model while fostering excellence for those striving to reach their maximum racing potential.

Parent Registration

There is a $25 Alpine Canada Parent fee for each parent/guardian involved in CMRC activities (including Race Shack entrance) This fee is required by Alpine Canada and provides insurance while watching races, in CMRC locations, and while volunteering.

What do you get for your money?

CMRC

Training. 4-6 hours of training per day. Approximately, this translates into:

  • One day program: 12 weekend days + 3 Christmas camp + 3 March break camp days = 72 hours of training ($6/hr)
  • Core program: 24 weekend days + 3 Christmas camp + 3 March break camp days = 120 hours of training ($5/hr)

The calculation is based on the training hours divided into CMRC fees. The training hours per season cannot be guaranteed due to factors such as weather, racing schedules, and the variability of sports in the great outdoors. During most seasons however, the training hours achieved is actually greater.

Great value for the price! How does this compare to your other extra-curricular activities? Learning to be an outdoor athlete in a fun and safe environment. Come ski with us.
