New this season, Plattekill will be offering a new Alpine Race Program designed to give children who love to ski an opportunity to improve their technical and general skiing skills with an emphasis on having fun. The program is grounded in the philosophy that children can only become great ski racers by first becoming great skiers.  

The Alpine Race Program is a natural progression from the Junior Development program which is the foundation and feeder program for the Race Program.  Directors of both work together.  There may be a circumstance where an athlete may participate in Junior Development to build a skill and then transition back into the Alpine Race Program.

Program consists of a 5-day Holiday Week Camp (Dec 27-Dec 31) plus (8) consecutive-week Saturdays starting Saturday, January 4, 2020 from 8:30am-4pm.

  • 8-week Alpine Race Program + Holiday Week Race Camp (Dec 27-Dec 31)   $999
  • 8-week Alpine Race Program (no holiday camp)   $759

Program Focus

  • 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.
