All Mountain Club - Requires a minimum of five students per program
The goal is to develop all mountain skiers/riders with the ability to ski/ride anywhere on the mountain (that is open and safe) under any conditions. To provide a program that gives every young athlete the opportunity to be their best, progress individually while working and improving together as a team. A desire for FUN is required. All programs and acceptance will be determined through a skiing assessment PRIOR to placement.
Mountain Explorers: age 5-6
This program is designed to progress athletes to the next level of all mountain skiing/riding. The goal is to introduce children to the fundamentals of good skiing etiquette and sportsmanship that will help them develop into well rounded, skilled athletes. The focus is on safety, fun and learning, in a non-competitive setting. This program is ideal for children who have previous lessons and experience. All athletes must have graduated from using the “edgie-wedgie” ski trainer, have ridden the Becker Chair in lessons, and qualify per instructor approval. Placement day will clarify if children are ready to start in the Mountain Explorers or need further lessons in our cubs programs.
Mountain Explorers Plus: ages 7-12
Participants establish a solid foundation of athletic skills on more varied all mountain terrain. Children learn to navigate the terrain on groomed and ungroomed snow, through bumps and trees. Explorers gain skills and social development with peers in a non-competitive setting. Emphasis on skills each week includes athletic stance, balance, edging, and pressuring movements to further advance the skill set. Coaching ratio approximately 1 to 6 participants.
Big Mountain Program: ages 13-18
Expand your ability and your horizons in this program. Free Ride Program is an all mountain alternative for the skier who knows where they want to ski on the mountain. This program is for athletes who have had previous experience but would like guidance to find the secret powder stash, master the terrain park and make smart, safe decisions while on the mountain. Each participant will be put in a group of similar skiers with the perfect professional coach to lead the way. Coaching ratio approximately 1 to 8.
