The primary goals of the SSWSC Development Programs are to cultivate a life-long passion for the sport of skiing and the competitive disciplines of alpine and freestyle skiing; to cultivate the technical and tactical skill to achieve the goals of the individual skier while cultivating life skills (focus, organization, timeliness, self-control, respect of rules and others, discipline in action, etc).
Every Developmental Program will emphasize skill development through free skiing in a variety of winter environments; trees, powder, moguls, gates and terrain parks. This exposure and mileage becomes the foundation for all future development and success in winter sports. We define success at each age grouping by individual improvements. These programs focus on fun and the development of basic fundamental athletic skills, strength, coordination, and stamina.
