Race and Skills Development Teams

SKI AND SNOWBOARD

Here is an opportunity to join a team that meets weekly. We will introduce you to racing at a competitive level and help you advance your skills to the point of being an independent skier. Our coaches will develop your skills to race in the Slalom and Giant Slalom categories.

It’s not all about racing though; we also take time to find some untracked powder, ski the tougher terrain and just have a blast on the slopes. You will learn to be a part of a team where everyone is helping each other to get better.

If you think you have what it takes and want to be a part of the team, then get in touch or talk to your instructor.

 

The Details:

 

  • Athletes must apply and be nominated to be accepted into the program.
  • A maximum of 6 lesson requests at any one time
  • Participants must be confidant, display the ability to work in small group lessons and ski/ride all groomed blue runs on all lifts in most conditions.
