MOUNTAIN EXPLORERS

Is your child looking to improve their skiing skills? Is your child interested in learning about ski racing? If so, this is a great group for you! The focus is on having fun on the mountain while helping each child develop into stronger skiers. The evenings will be spent skiing together as a group with a low athlete to coach ratio. Athletes will working on drills to develop a strong foundation and eventually will progress into running ski race courses. This program runs one evening a week.
