Mittersill Race & Training Slopes is a designated training site for the U.S. Ski Team - and it’s where 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.
