Our new Developmental Race Team program is an eight week program on Saturday mornings, designed for kids aged 6-14 who want to go fast. Certified coaches guide participants through a progression of drills designed to develop ski-racing skills.
The program introduces the fundamentals of ski racing and gate training with a focus on developing a solid skiing foundation. Our season culminates with two timed races where participants demonstrate the skills learned and compete with others in the program. At the end of this program, participants receive Certificates of Completion and receive an assessment of readiness to transition to the Powder Ridge Race Team from their coaches.
The program will meet from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays in January and February. All participants must be able to load, ride and unload the chairlift independently and must be able to ski all trails comfortably. Training will take place on the Middlefield trail. Helmets are required but racing suits and racing skis not required.
Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon on Jan. 5, 12, 19 and 26. Feb. 2, 9. 16 and 23. Race dates are Feb. 2 and Feb. 16.
$599 includes an 8-hour lift ticket for each Saturday. Season Pass Holders can join the Program for $450.
