U10 Ski Meisters, ages 8-10

Ski Meisters practice alpine and cross country skiing as well as nordic ski jumping. These three disciplines are complementary and provide a great foundation for skiers to pursue one of the disciplines in the future. This is also a great program for kids who just like to do it all. It combines the U10 2-day skiing program with a day of cross country and a day of jumping in the U10 Nordic Combined program. Participants may use alpine skis for jumping, or use nordic jumping skis/boots once ready. Nordic jumping equipment is available to rent from the club for a nominal fee based on availability. Participants should have their own alpine and cross country skis (ask coaches about seasonal rental packages available through local businesses). Participation in the Hitchens Brothers’ Wednesday Night Jump Series and Steamboat Cups is encouraged. Athletes interested in jumping on some or all Saturdays in place of alpine skiing may do so with advance communication with the coaches. Dryland training goes until on-snow training begins, typically mid-late November. Jumping and cross country end on March 12.
