Alpine U14 Full-Time | YOB 2008-2009

This program is designed to build racing skills through a well-planned training progression, including a combination of fundamental drill work, games, gate training, race simulation, aggressive freeskiing on Vail and Beaver Creek mountains and racing. Through strong, simple coaching of the basic fundamentals our U14’s are being well prepared for future U16/FIS racing as well as performing at the top of their U14 age group at the last Regional Championships, where this program took 21 of 30 possible podium spots.

Informational meetings will be conducted prior to the first Golden Peak training day for parents to meet staff, learn the training and race calendar, and understand details of their child’s program.

A USSA U14 competitor membership will be required for U14s to race. This will allow them to enter RMD races.
