Lake Eldora Race Team!
The Lake Eldora Race Team (LERT) was formed in 1975 to support local interest in ski racing. Although the organization was originally named for the Eldora Resort, which opened under the name Lake Eldora, the Lake Eldora Race Team was and remains an independent organization.
The organization focused on providing a team centered racing experience for those who loved to ski race in the 70s and 80s, catering to all ages. In the mid-90s, LERT became a more formal entity providing ski racing programs to young skiers on the Front Range. Formal coaching staff and a director of operations developed more focused programs. LERT held fundraising events, recruited directors and coaches with ski racing experience, and formalizing programs.
