The Next Step in Alpine Ski Racing

This is a high quality, fun focused program for kids 6 and 7 years old that introduces them to more advanced skills and provides them with an introduction to some racing experience. The racing at this level is mostly social in an atmosphere where the kids are introduced to running gates without worrying about time or competition.

The U8 Elite program focuses on improving your child’s skiing. We tackle all aspects of their ski development including the introduction of short gates (stubbies) or brushes as indicators in the snow. This ‘gate’ training helps with timing and understanding of turn shape. Utilizing these gate exercises and general free ski runs helps to develop a confident well balanced all round skier.

This 35 day program meets Saturdays at Nakiska and Monday nights at COP. There are several away races at various resorts throughout the season. A 3 Day Christmas Camp is also included as well as an add-on Free Ski trip to Fernie which is highly recommended.

Athletes must be comfortable on all Blue terrain and somewhat comfortable on Black terrain.

Recommended Passes
