More on the Racing Programs…

  • Program is aligned with the US Ski & Snowboard curriculum to promote a dynamic athletic stance and balance using creative training.
  • Program uses the SkillsQuest approach, US Ski & Snowboard’s curriculum for defining and developing fundamental skiing skills.
  • We use guided free skiing with an emphasis on dynamic balance development and age appropriate training.
  • We impart skiing fundamentals using creative drills and gate training.
  • We promote athleticism using slalom, giant slalom and kombi training courses.  Training does not necessarily imply gates. It is an introduction to ski racing.  Heavy emphasis remains focused on free skiing and drills to further develop dynamic balance, agility, edging, rotary skills and adaptability.
