INTRODUCTION TO RACING – AGES 6-13 years of age (U8-U14)

This program is our entry level program for ages 6-13 (U8-U14) which starts with a 5 day camp over the Christmas holiday period, then skis every Saturday starting the first weekend in January through mid March. This program is designed for children who have already learned how to ski, but need further instruction on the basic skill development and techniques that will enable them to go anywhere on the mountain.

Skiers will build a base of solid skills and basic fundamentals through directed free skiing and  some basic GS gate training, and friendly competition. This program emphasizes improving free-skiing and free-riding, basic race fundamentals, skiing and riding etiquette, safety and fun!
