Porters offers superb conditions for local and international race teams looking for a pristine training environment. We allow a maximum of three race lanes for gate training on the ski area at any one time.
Mountain rules must be obeyed – the safety of the skiing public has to be assured at all times. All racers must ski slowly after finishing the course and while approaching lift queues. Failure to comply with these safety rules will result in the instant removal of the race trainee’s lift pass.

Training Locations & Times
Location of training areas varies from day to day and has to be confirmed each morning with the Porters management. Snow conditions, visibility and high skiing traffic can limit the duration of training.
The normal time and location for race training is 8am – 10am, one GS lane on skier’s right and one slalom lane on skier’s left of T-Bar 1. The slalom lane can be used all day. We also have one slalom lane at T-Bar 3 on skier’s right which can be used from 9am to 12pm. There is no GS training after 10am.
On most days, Monday to Friday, an 8am start is possible, but this needs to be confirmed by Porters management each day. Between 10 am and 4pm, only slalom training is available with a maximum of two lanes on Easy Street and one lane on skier’s right of T-Bar 3. There is no, or limited training, on weekends or very busy days during normal operating hours.
All courses must be fenced off and set in a way that the safety of the skiing public is not jeopardised. Lift passes must be clearly visible. We do not offer lift queue privileges for race teams.
All main runs including the race course are groomed each night, however if extra grooming for the course is required, an additional fee of $250/grooming hour is charged.
We request that each race team coordinator signs a race team agreement and undertakes to inform all race team members of their obligations under this policy. To avoid any unpleasantness, we request that team officials, coaches and coordinators comply with our terms. We appreciate your co-operation and look forward to working with you.
Group/team bookings can be confirmed with a 10% non-refundable deposit. The deposit can be refunded under special circumstances (i.e. area not open due to lack of snow). Book early to avoid disappointment, first in first served.
Accommodation and transport can also be arranged, see the quick links to the right of this page.
