U6 Skiing

All SSWSC programs are subject to change due to Covid-19. Program start and end dates, times, schedules, and structure may be adjusted. If necessary, programs may be interrupted or cancelled. We will communicate any changes to all families who have registered.

U6 Skiing (Age 5)

U6 has changed this year to one 8 week session for just 5 year olds.  U6 is a development program for participants who are ready to ski in a group. Fundamental skiing skills and skiing as a group are introduced in an encouraging and fun way. Participants must be 5 years old by December 31, 2020. Skiers must be ready to ski without their parents and willingly leave the meeting area with their coaches.

  • Minimum requirement: Ability to stop by themselves
  • Participants need alpine ski equipment including helmets (ski poles not required)
  • Participants must have a ski pass or ticket to Steamboat Ski Resort
  • Enrollment for this program will reach capacity. Register early.


Sundays 9:15am-12:15pm

January 9 – March 6


Steamboat Ski Resort


Lodges: SSWSC will have a temperature cut-off of when we won’t have training due to the lack of indoor facilities to warm-up. As a club, we are not allowing use of lodges at Howelsen or Steamboat unless for emergency. We will know more about bathrooms, warming huts, tents, etc in the near future. Just know that if your child refuses to put on that extra layer, bring it and the coach will work on it. It is so important this year to make sure they are dressed appropriately. All kids will be expected to arrive to training, full ready to ski.

Drop-off/Pick-up: Within the times from above, we might shift 5-10 minutes to spread out congregating of groups. This year more than ever, you will need to be right on time!

Masks: All kids will be required to wear masks or face coverings. Knowing how kids love to chew on their neck gaiters, I recommend stocking up and putting a fresh one in their pocket!

Snacks: We will still stop for a mid-morning break, but it will be outside. Each kid should have a small hand sanitizer in their pocket
