Middle School Team | 5th – 8th Grade

The early season training starts with flats in October (usually starting around mid-October) and then moves to an early season training course on the Golden Peak Expansion (usually in early November) and later transitions to our competition arena at Vail Mountain. Athletes train primarily on the mogul course. Freeskiing sessions are scheduled sporadically to take advantage of powder conditions. Athletes must be enrolled in VSSA, a parallel program at VMS or another academic option that supports a three-day-per-week mid-week training schedule as calendared in the winter. Middle School athletes are encouraged to attend water ramps, spring and summer camps.
