U16 Program

This is a program for our 14-15 year old athletes (as of December 31) and is a continuation of the U14 ski racing experience from FAST. The program begins with regular dryland training starting in June, and ski camps in July @ Mt. Hood and in early November in Sun Peaks.

Once the snow flies, until May, our regular training is two evenings at COP with weekends and the occasional weekday spent training at Nakiska or away at races. Extra days of skiing generally get added onto race weekends and additional dryland and ski camps are offered.

U16 athletes will compete in a variety of different race disciplines.  Slalom, GS, Super G, Super Combined ans Skier-X. The recommended ski pass is a Nakiska pass and COP pass.

U16 athletes have the opportunity to qualify for a number of extra ski camps and races.  Alberta Alpine organise High Performance Camps for the best U16′s in the province.  This gives U16′s from different clubs a chance to ski against each other and get an idea of where they stand compared to other athletes their age. The top U16′s are selected to represent Alberta at the U16 National Championships, where the best in the country compete against each other. Based on performances at the Nationals, athletes are selected for Whistler Cup, an international children’s race event where some of the best kinder athletes from around the world come to compete.
