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.
