Alpine FIS and FIS Elite Teams | YOB 2000-2004

Each team will design its progression based on the focus series in which they will be competing. Training plans will include spring, summer and early season training within a year-round schedule. They will follow a yearly conditioning plan designed and overseen by the coaches in cooperation with the Human Performance staff at the Minturn Fitness Center, always with the goal of helping each athlete achieve his or her maximum potential.

Each team has specific criteria. Please see the descriptions to determine the team in which an athlete fits.

Year-round programming: Skiing in Colorado typically extends from October 20 through mid-May. This can allow for approximately 140 days on snow during this period in addition to other on-snow camps offered.

Training Days: Tuesday through Sunday. Meeting times vary (usually in the morning), generally five days per week

Conditioning Days: Five days per week during prep period, maintenance during season

Goal setting: Developed with coaches during the early prep period

Technical Services Support: available as an additional option (not included in program fees). Learn more >

Evaluations: Mid-season evaluations by January 31 | End-of-season evaluations by April 30

Note: Group training/skiing on Vail Mountain may be restricted to the Golden Peak Competition Arena early season until a substantial portion of Vail Mountain opens to the public. As a result, meeting times for Alpine Programs may be adjusted during this period.
