• This League is one of three ski leagues in OISRAN.
  • 80 High School student-athletes compete in races held at different locations in Central and Southern Oregon. 
  • We compete in a variety of League races – interval starts and mass starts; classic and freestyle; pursuit races and relay races; and a paintball biathlon event.
  • Southern League sponsors a ‘Southern League Race Series,’ comprised of a series of races where individual racers and teams earn points at each race in the series and are recognized with awards at the end of the series based on cumulative points.
  • The racing season culminates with the State Championships, where we compete for two days with skiers from the other OISRAN Leagues.
  • This is a no-cut program, meaning any student may ski on their school team.  We welcome novice skiers and non-skiers, as well as experienced racers. 
  • You need only to enjoy snow and outdoor adventures to join us.
  • We are a program that is run by VOLUNTEERS (parents and others)
