U14

With a basic understanding of the fundamentals of skiing, many new elements are added.  More time is spent developing technical skills, with an increased focus on cross training, goal setting, planning, and equipment. The majority of time is still spent in free skiing and directed free skiing, with incremental increases in gate training.   Giant Slalom is the main focus of all gate training.

As the athlete progresses we spend more time dedicated to gate training.  Time spent training each of the disciplines becomes more balanced.  New elements are added including increased technical training, more detailed goal setting, performance planning, equipment, imagery, and competition.  There is also an increased emphasis on cross training and other dry land activities.  Free skiing will still be a vital part of the program.  Coaches will utilize our unique terrain to aid in athletic skill development.

At top competitive levels training must be customized for each athlete.  Goal setting and performance planning is crucial in order to design training schedules that fit the needs and commitment of each athlete.  These athletes require special attention and very specific training cycles.  Free skiing will still be a vital part of the program.  Coaches will utilize our unique terrain to aid in athletic skill development.

  • Minimum requirement:  All athletes enrolled must be comfortable skiing the entire mountain.

  • USSA & RMD membership is required.  Not included in program fees.
