Our specialized seasonal programs afford young athletes the opportunity to further enhance their love of their sport through our Development and Competitions Programs.
Our Competition Programs offer young athletes the opportunity to dream big and strive to reach their highest goals. This 18-week seasonal program trains athletes to compete in alpine racing, snowboarding and freestyle skiing. Our professional and seasoned coaching staff motivates, instructs and mentors athletes as young as 8 years old up to 18 years old. Athletes will learn the technical aspects of their sport, in a fun and challenging environment that promotes good sportsmanship.
This program is to train and develop athletes who wish to excel in the world of alpine racing. Training will focus on the specific tactics related to racing on a USSA course.
