The Loon Race Team is committed to creating a learning environment in which athletes can explore their true potential. LRT is a skiing community, in which the membership is committed to the process of developing athletes' self-understanding through the process of performing on the field of play, while participating within the team framework. Plainly said - we like to go fast, have fun and be nice!

Loon Race Team is pleased to announce that Trevor Hamilton has been appointed as our new full time Race Program Director. We are very excited to have Trevor in this role. He was most recently our Assistant Race Program Director and Head U12 Coach. Trevor began his coaching career at Cannon as a coach for FSC. After five years of coaching he was named the Program Director. Trevor is a USSA Level 300 Certified coach, has attended the National Coaches Academy at Mammoth, California and is also a USSA Level 3 Chief of Course, Alpine Official and Referee. In 2006 Trevor was selected as Eastern Staff to the Whistler Cup National Development System project where one of his athletes was competing. He was honored to be selected by U.S. Team Staff as course setter for the K2 GS in that event where the U.S. Team got second place after Norway in the Nations Cup. Trevor has coordinated many summer ski camps at Mt. Hood, Oregon and has coached at fall camps in Copper, Colorado. He is very proud of all of the accomplishments earned by athletes he has coached over the years, including but not limited to: Macomber Cup individual and team titles, Lafoley Spring Series champion, multiple JIII Junior Olympic podiums in all three disciplines, JIII Regional & State series titles, 2 BWL Championships, 2015 NHARA U12 Slalom Champion, 5 athletes to Whistler Cup(earning 3 medals!), 3 athletes to Topolino Winter Games in Italy, 2 athletes named to U.S. Nationals and several to National Development System Camps in the U.S. and Austria. More importantly, however, is the true connection he makes with all of his athletes. A connection that helps them all reach their absolute best both in skiing and in life.
