The emphasis in competition is placed on individual progress, team results, camaraderie, and fair play.

All Mountain Club - Requires a minimum of five students per program

Goal:  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.
