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 Race 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 is a 30 day program that meets multiple days per week. There are 2 skiing days per week starting mid November. This is comprised of 1 evening training session at COP and Saturday training at Nakiska as well as a few weekends away at races. 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 be somewhat comfortable on Black terrain.
