U19/U21 Alpine Weekend Program
The U19/21 Weekend Program provides athletes with the opportunity to refine their skills during training. Our professional and experienced coaching staff will help athletes achieve the next level of alpine racing development. This program is for athletes ages 16 and up (as of the end of the calendar year). U19/21 athletes compete in approximately 25-50 races each season, consisting primarily of USSA events. Many of our athletes also train and compete with their high school teams during the week. Athletes may qualify for FIS competitions based on their ability and appropriate level of USSA points.
The U19/21 Weekend program is about sharing your passion for skiing with a bunch of great friends who also want to be the best they can be. Whether you aspire to race in college, compete at the USSA/FIS level, be a hero on your high school team, or just be the best skier you can, we have you covered.
In this program, we explore every inch of our mountain – we ski everything, in any condition, and we have a blast doing it. We rock field trips to other mountains in search of new adventure. We push ourselves and help bring out the best in each other, and we’re not afraid to celebrate with a cinnamon roll and tell stories later.
We compete proudly at many different levels. We thrive on finding new ways to unlock our hidden superpowers, and we learn how to pick ourselves back up when things don’t go as planned. We celebrate competition results, fresh tracks, and good times with good friends. It’s about skiing. It’s about friends and family. It’s about LIFE.
DON’T BE LEFT OUT. COME SKI WITH US!
