U10/U12/U14

The U10/12/14 alpine program is for assertive young skiers ages 8-13 and is focused on developing increasingly refined alpine skills in preparation for our more competitive U16 and U19/21 programs.

We provide a fun, yet structured learning environment that emphasizes racing skills and techniques in all types of conditions and terrain. All young athletes in the U14 and under programs compete in a limited number of open USSA events in NH, with a focus on the Northern Division NHARA Qualifiers for our U14 and U12’s. Our U10 athletes will have the opportunity for skill challenges in their Northern Division calendar. WVBBTS U12 and U14 athletes strive to win the Overall Team Trophy at the NHARA Finals and at the NHARA State Championships as well as to individually qualify for the U12/14 NHARA State Team. Our most dedicated U14 athletes strive to earn an invitation to the USSA Eastern Jr. Championships and ultimately compete at the Eastern U14 Can-Am competitions.
