U17/U19/FIS Moguls, 15+

The U17/19/FIS Program is designed for athletes in high school or who have graduated high school and would like to extend their mogul skiing career. This program is considered the most elite-level mogul skiing program available at SSWSC. Mogul skiing should be the athlete’s primary sport, while a secondary shoulder season sport is still possible. This program is intended to be the winter portion of the comprehensive year-round mogul skiing U17/19/FIS program. Competitions include Rocky Mountain Comp Series, Junior Nationals, US Championships, US Selection Events, NorAm Tour, World Cup, and other FIS events. The competition schedule is determined by the coaching staff for each athlete. Athletes in this program should participate in the U17/19/FIS summer training program.
