Cadillac High School Ski Team

Cadillac High School has a rich tradition as a powerhouse in ski racing. Since the state recognized ski racing as a MHSAA sanctioned sport in 1975, the Cadillac Boys’ Ski Team has won State Titles in ‘78 and ‘81. They were Runners’ Up in ‘76 ,‘82, 14’, and have numerous other top-ten finishes. The Cadillac Girls’ Ski Team won State Titles in ‘77, ‘78, ‘83, and ‘90. They were Runners’ Up in ‘75, ‘76, ‘80, ‘82, ‘84, ‘85, ‘86, ‘89, ‘96, and ‘01. The girls have rarely been out of the top 10.

These records make the Cadillac High School Ski Team the most successful athletic program at Cadillac High School. Historically, we rank 4th in the state, behind Traverse City , Marquette and Petoskey.

In order to stay competitive, we need to train our young athletes in the art of ski racing at a younger age. This allows them the time to develop their skills in a fun, yet competitive, way. Our goal is to teach our young athletes ski racing fundamentals and to teach them the fun of competition. This, we hope, will keep the tradition of Cadillac Skiing alive and well.
