Alpine Skiing Coed Varsity
There is a long tradition of Alpine Skiing at Hebron Academy dating back nearly 100 years, and we are proud to carry that tradition forward to this day. The team focuses on dry land training and ski tuning and maintenance in the early season, and beginning in January and through the end of the competitive season, Hebron skiers are on snow each day during the week. Many of our practices take place at the Lost Valley ski area (located just 15 minutes from campus), where the team enjoys excellent slalom practice throughout the season, and we travel to Shawnee Peak in Bridgton for giant slalom practices on a bigger hill.
Our competitive season consists of six or seven weekly races alternating between slalom and giant slalom events, and our racing venues include both the Sunday River and Shawnee Peak ski areas. During the season, team members compete for individual point standings with racers from other MAISAD league schools, and we conclude our regular season with a MAISAD Team Championship including slalom and giant slalom events for both varsity and JV team members. The varsity team continues on to the New England Championship, and in 2019 Hebron’s Alpine teams enjoyed unprecedented success when the boys varsity team finished as the New England Class C champions and the girls varsity team finished as New England Class C runners-up.
Coach Stonebraker has coached Hebron Academy ski teams for 37 years, becoming a leader in prep school skiing. He helped craft the bylaws of the Maine Prep League and also was active in MARA (Maine Alpine Racing Association) serving as TD at USSA races in Maine. He was inducted into the Maine Ski Hall of Fame in 2018.
