This is our entry US Ski & Snowboard program for athletes in the U8, U10 or U12 age groups. The program includes a balance of free skiing, skill development and gate training.  Athletes will have the opportunity to train multiple disciplines (SL & GS primarily) throughout the season all led by a fun and supportive coaching staff.

  • Includes a minimum of three on snow sessions per week starting in December and ending in March (start & end dates dependent on snow/training availability).

    • Training will take place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30-8:00PM at Tyrol Basin. Free skiing warm-up is encouraged prior to practice for 20-30 minutes each evening.
