About CSAT

Since 1978, Cooper Spur Alpine Team has provided our community with a program designed to develop youth ski racing. Staring in 2011 CSAT expanded programming to offer youth Mt.Bike skill development and Freeride/Freestyle skiing. CSAT offers an ideal program for children of all ages who want to become expert, all-mountain, and life long skiers and Mt.Bikers, while having fun and learning to compete.

CSAT’s coaching staff is dedicated to helping racers at all levels achieve their ski and biking goals. However, excellence in skiing and competition is only part of our mission. Our programs help youth develop important life skills and values such as cooperation, teamwork, positive attitude, honesty, and dedication. We also pride ourselves in producing some of the top racers in the Pacific Northwest.

CSAT is not owned or operated by Cooper Spur Ski Area. We are an independent entity who conducts its programs at the resort and is supported by the ski area with grooming services, storage facilities, and trail closures for racing. CSAT is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) volunteer organization comprised of racers, their parents, coaches, and alumni. Program fees pay for approximately 60% of our expenditures. The remainder of our budget depends entirely upon fund raising activities, donations and business sponsorship.

CSAT has an average of 120 participants per ski season, and 60 Mt.Bike Club members in the summer. CSAT hosts 3 major ski events each year at Cooper Spur Ski Area or Mt Hood Meadows, drawing over 350 competitors and their families from all over the Pacific Northwest region. These events are the annual Cooper Camp in December and the Cooper Duel SL Race.  CSAT also does 3 fundraisers annually including the Ski-a-thon, holiday wreath sales, and a 21 and over fall fundraiser silent auction event.



Business and corporate sponsors are critical in helping Cooper Spur Alpine Team achieve its mission to create athletes that are competitive at all ski racing levels. The generosity of our sponsors keeps program fees at accessible levels for all athletes in our community. Fees paid by participants only partially cover the costs of the coaching staff. Additional funds are needed and are essential to every aspect of our program from racing and timing equipment to providing athletic scholarships. Your sponsorship of CSAT would provide you with an
exceptional access to a large target market of active outdoor oriented consumers. Most importantly, as a sponsor of CSAT you make it possible for our youth to enjoy a fun and healthy activity at affordable prices. All donations are tax deductible.
