Helping young people become great skiers and spectacular human beings
Children in this group focus on fundamental skill development as well as athletic and personal growth. To meet the minimum requirements to participate in this program, children must ski mostly parallel on intermediate terrain, be able to load, ride, and unload chairlifts safely and independently, and be able to follow instructions from the coaching staff. Our certified and experienced coaches use various training environments and the latest methodologies to provide the best development opportunities for our athletes. Children in this group are introduced to the sport of ski racing and will participate in the Mini World Cup (MWC) series at Windham. The U10 age group will have the option to attend one NYSSRA race at the end of season. This race is optional and the children need to receive a recommendation from the coach. Children are not expected to travel and do not need to be members of U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association and NYSSRA (New York State Ski Racing Association).
Saturdays and Sundays, December 17, 2022 - March 12, 2023, and includes select holiday dates

All-Mountain Team athletes can enjoy a free spirit approach to ski improvement and skill development while under the close guidance of a coach. Your child will find camaraderie, athletic development, teamwork, and respect for the mountains that are our playground. This program will focus on a blend of skill development, tactics, race training, and more, without putting a priority on competition. It’s the perfect option for children seeking a team environment without exclusively focusing on racing. Children are eligible for Mini World Cup (MWC) home races and no travel is needed or expected.
