DEVELOPMENT TEAM

The Development Team ("D-Team") program teaches the basic techniques of skiing to children from ages 7-16 who are beginner intermediate through advanced skiers and who are not ready for the competitive ski teams.

The program will promote skiing by teaching techniques and format as the skiers become ready. This includes both ski racing and free skiing.  Each athlete should learn to ski naturally, developing his/her own style. D-Team members may move up to either the Race Team or All Mountain Team by satisfactorily passing a skills test, though move up is not mandatory. The D-Team serves children who wish to become better recreational skiers, those desiring to race and/or those wishing to participate on the All Mountain Team.

PROGRAM DETAILS

The Development Team (“D- Team”) is a weekend 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. program. Minimum age for D-Team is 7, though very independent 6 year olds may be accepted.

Participants will need to be able to:
  • Get up and down the hill independently with confidence and basic skills.
  • Load all chairlifts independently.
  • Learn and follow directions while participating in group activities.

The D-Team program is a 16-week program with 9 hours of training each week, 4.5 hours on Saturday and 4.5 hours on Sunday. This season the first date of training is scheduled for Saturday, December 2, 2017 and the final date of training will be Sunday, March 18, 2018.
