ProgRams

Skier Essentials: Ages 6-9 (U10)

Skiers in this stage learn how to ski through race courses and develop competitive skills while maintaining an emphasis on fun. Training sessions are designed to develop the joy of skiing while introducing new technical aspects of ski racing in a variety of environments. The spirit of competition is established in training and developed at races throughout the season, including Snow Stars skill station events.
 
Full Program (Thursdays & Sundays) or Sunday Only Program options are available.

Gliding Start: Ages 5-6

Young athletes are engaged in age appropriate programming with fewer athletes per coach to provide consistent encouragement. By learning through play, youngsters develop their competence in the fundamental movement patterns of skiing and build confidence in their abilities. The focus of this stage is to have fun while sliding on snow and develop physical literacy. Youth in the Gliding Start stage are encouraged to ski a variety of terrain in a fun and engaging environment!

Athletes at this stage of development are challenged through events like the Kombi Races, Multi Run Races, Dual Events, and Snow Stars skills station events.
