Youth Development

U10 Skiing (2-,3-, and 4-day) ages 8-10

U10 4day (U10 4D) *NEW*

This signature program is for those kids that are passionate about continuing in the sport of skiing and prepares kids for a competitive track after U10 in either Freestyle, Freeskiing or Alpine Racing. It requires dedicated attendance and enthusiasm for skiing. Three days will be focused on alpine skiing fundamentals using a variety of training environments all over the mountain and skills and race courses. On the fourth day, athletes will ski on cross country (XC) skate equipment incorporating games, poma rides, jumps, balance work, skate technique and adventures with the goal of developing a more broad range of balance, strength and movement skills that form the foundation of optimal athletic development. This requires athletes to have two sets of equipment; alpine gear and XC skate gear. Skiers will be with a consistent coach and group through the program as they use the different disciplines to become well-rounded, incredibly balanced skiers. Competition opportunities locally are included, and a few travel competitions will be offered, but the focus remains on training at this age. Minimum requirement: Comfortably ski blue runs, no XC ski experience needed.

  • Equipment Rental: Alpine Skis - SSWSC partners with a few ski shops to ensure proper equipment and fit. There will be a U10 Alpine fit night at the end of September to size your athlete.
