There’s still time to register for Ski & Snowboard Club Vail’s part-time programs. SSCV offers an array of program options for developing athletes across all five of our program disciplines: alpine, freeski, moguls, Nordic and snowboard. Not sure? We’ve got a program for that, too.
The Future Stars program progressively develops the skiing skills of children ages 6-9 in a safe, fun and challenging environment on Vail Mountain. On-snow technical training and participation in the Steadman Clinic Vail Cup are the basis of this program. The goal at this age is to open the possibilities by exposing the athletes to all three of the skiing disciplines (alpine, freeski and freestyle). MORE INFO
The Rookie Team program, part of our freeski department, is designed to provide young athletes with an introduction to the park & pipe and/or all-mountain freeskiing. Coaches will focus on a variety of skiing skills. First is the fundamentals of skiing through drills and carving skills in the mornings. Then we will head out to tackle the whole mountain for skiing or delve into the Park & Pipe environment, depending on the group dynamics. MORE INFO
