The race team, which includes downhill ski racers up to 18 years old, falls into the youth category that is one of the Exchange Club’s main focus area in its support of the community. The club raises funds at the International Food Fest that it sponsors annually over the Fourth of July holiday, with proceeds being distributed to about two dozen local organizations.
