Alpine Bank Get in the Gates Recreational Racing Training Program | Ages 8+

Get in the Gates is perfect for racers age 8 and older, any community member or any part-time resident of the Vail Valley who wants affordable, consistent and supervised Alpine race training in both slalom and giant slalom. The program caters to recreational racing participants, middle school and high school racers, and adults. Athletes should be proficient skiers comfortable navigating all terrain on Golden Peak, and riding the T-bar by themselves, with the desire to grow their skiing and racing experience. Higher-level racers will also benefit from access to this training venue.  

It is one of the truly special opportunities offered by SSCV and in SSCV’s way — and Alpine Bank’s way — a means to provide community-based access to a world-class training venue for those wishing for a recreational race experience.
