Future Stars | YOB 2014-2018

A strong fundamental skill base will enable children to develop to their personal potential and specialize in their future area of interest. There is no better way for kids to learn about their potential, limits, friendships and sportsmanship while learning a lifelong pastime. They will acquire the very best skiing skills with an introduction to safety, etiquette, and competition arena protocols. The program is primarily Alpine skiing focused, but will expose participants to three on-mountain skiing disciplines (Alpine, freeski, and mogul).
