Based at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort, this program will challenge young athletes (ages 9 to 14) who have a passion for both Nordic and alpine skiing. Training sessions will be focused on pure enjoyment of the sports as well as developing improved technique through coaching feedback and volume on snow. Nordic sessions will be “skate skiing” and alpine sessions will be focused on skiing the entire mountain, both off-piste and groomed. Training sessions will begin and end at the Village Hall and participants will ski at Sugar Bowl and Royal Gorge.
As with all Sugar Bowl Ski Team programs, the primary goal is for skiers to have fun while challenging themselves physically and mentally side by side with teammates and quality coaches.
Training days are scheduled for weekends and holidays.
