Mittersill Race & Training Slopes is a designated training site for the U.S. Ski Team - and it’s the ski area Holderness skiers train and race.

Mittersill Race & Training Slopes and the Mittersill Performance Center are the result of a partnership between Holderness School, Franconia Ski Club, Cannon Mountain and the State of New Hampshire, and the US Ski Team. Over the last six years, these organizations have raised nearly $7,000,000 to add snowmaking, install a new t-bar lift, and regrade two race trails at Mittersill. With the completion of the Mittersill Performance Center, this partnership has transformed ski racing in the Northeast.

Mittersill is located in the heart of the White Mountains in New Hampshire at Fanconia Notch State Park, just 35 minutes from Holderness campus.
