Our alpine racing team focuses on fun and fundamental skill development for the beginner to advanced racer, ages 5 and up. Program training provides the athletes with a mix of gate running and directed free skiing from December to the beginning of April. Team goals go beyond the slopes with a focus on helping each athlete develop self-confidence, pride in accomplishment and an understanding of commitment and follow-through.
Our coaches are dedicated to developing skiers with versatility, all-around athleticism and the ability to adapt tactically, both in and out of a racecourse. Family involvement is a key element to the success of our race programs. Parents' participation in hosting events and fundraisers make this an affordable and fun opportunity for the whole family.
Whether your racer is here just for the holidays or all season long, FAST Racing Camps are a great way to develop skiing and racing skills, while meeting new people and building confidence. These camps focus on gate training, all terrain skiing, fun races and more!
