Our Alpine Programs are for kids who love to ski fast!
Following the Aim2Win document (a ski specific long term athletic development plan from Alpine Canada) our alpine programs develop confident skiers in all disciplines of alpine skiing. Athletes in these programs train to compete in Slalom GS, Super G, Downhill and Ski Cross races. Focus is on developing athletes that are confident, capable and versatile in all terrains and conditions. To achieve this we spend as much time in race courses as we do out on the mountain skiing groomers, steeps, powder, bumps, trees and jumps. Cruising groomers on the front side, charging gates on the Dreadnaught and ripping down Antons are all essential in achieving our goal of creating athletes that love to train, love to compete and most importantly love to ski!
Athletes enter U10 with a good skiing background and our goal is to turn that into a technically solid alpine race foundation. We do this by introducing these athletes to every possible environment, terrain and condition in a fun and safe way. Whether the conditions are perfect groomers, soft bumps, icy courses or knee deep powder our coaches use the mountain to facilitate an awesome learning environment. In Racing Foundations our philosophy is everyday on snow is a good day to learn!
Athletes enter U12 with a love for skiing and this programs goal is to expand that to a love for training. Developing confident and versatile skiers is our top priority and as such coaches will continue to develop athletes all mountain abilities while introducing new race specific skills. New concepts are taught while freeskiing and the coaches work with athletes to transition those skills onto the race course. Focus is on developing athletes that are confident, capable and versatile in all terrains and conditions.
