Junior Development

Junior Development Program

Our Junior Development Program is geared to take children’s ability to the next level with consecutive weeks of instruction offering consistency and continuity throughout the program.  It is designed to develop fundamental skiing skills and concentrates on drills designed to address balance, agility, edging and rotation skills…all while having fun.

The program is offered in 8-week & 4-week sessions on Saturdays.  Students are evaluated and grouped according to age, skiing skill assessment and attitude.  For the most part, kids should expect to remain with the same group and coach for the duration of the program with the entire group together for some parts of the day.

2022/23 PROGRAM:

December 31 – “Meet the Coaches”, assess ability levels, answer questions, “ski off”.

January 7, January 14, January 21, January 28, February 4, February 18, February 25, March 4
*  If you select the 4-week option, you have the option to attend 4-weeks in January or 4-weeks in February/March.
