Philosophy: This group uses race-oriented training by honing technique and racing skills with focus on building ability to train year round. The skiers are encouraged to race. These skiers set goals and work with coaches to achieve their individual goals. Our objective is to teach these skiers to ski technically well at speed. We strive to provide education on mindfulness training and nutrition as well as team building skills and, of course, a life long love of the sport. This group attends races in the Northwest and Canada with opportunities for National race opportunities where appropriate.
We strive to have a skier/coach ratio of 6-7 skiers/coach.
