All Future Stars participants will be entered in the Vail Cup series, providing an opportunity to learn about each of the various types of competition and a glimpse into their possibilities as competitive skiers.
Coaches will work with Future Stars to build a strong fundamental skill base and spend time in each category of venue prior to the associated Vail Cup event.
