Race U10-U18:

The Race program consists of two levels of training, Regional Race and USSA/FIS Race, each designed to refine and enhance the athlete’s skills and knowledge of the sport.

Our athletes will train and compete in Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super G and Down Hill.

Regional Race U10-U14:

Regional Race is our introductory program with a racing focus. The developmental activities are still heavily focused on free skiing and skill development, while introducing structured technical gate training.

The Teams will ski most of the mountain, be introduced to steeps, moguls, powder, trees, jumps and Slalom and Giant Slalom race skills.

The  program serves a wide range of skiing abilities, with an increased focus on cross training, goal setting, planning, and equipment. The coaches work closely together to evaluate and accommodate different ski and race levels. The program is for skiers ranging from little racing experience as well as those athletes with several years of racing behind them.

The majority of time is spent in directed free skiing, with incremental increases in gate training. Giant Slalom is the main focus of all gate training, with a gradual increase in Slalom gate training.

Abilities

All athletes must be comfortable skiing all intermediate and some expert terrain.  Athletes who feel comfortable skiing all runs of the Windsor chair are encouraged to consider this program.

Race Competition at this level is primarily regional at Mt. Ashland, Willamette Pass, and Mt. Shasta.  Far West regional championship race  is also available for qualifying athletes.

USSA / FIS Race U14-U18:

The U14s,  U16s, and U18s will spend more time dedicated to gate training and focus on developing solid racing technique and teaching course tactics . Time spent training each of the disciplines becomes more balanced. New elements are added, such as increased technical training, more detailed goal setting, performance planning, equipment, video analysis, and timed training runs.

The U14s, U16s and U18s train in Slalom, Giant Slalom and Super G and the athletes are expected to arrive at training in good athletic shape and prepared to work with their equipment in excellent condition. Dry land training is a major component of this program and participation is highly recommended.

Free skiing emphasis is on hard, fast skiing in challenging terrain. Following the USSA model, free skiing will still be a vital part of this program and coaches will utilize our terrain to aid in athletic skill and mental development. While the program still provides a fun, social environment for the athletes, they will learn to work harder to improve and achieve pre-set goals.

The U16s and U18s are very focused and serious about their ski racing. Training sessions will be customized for each athlete and the focus is on refining skills to the highest level. Goal setting and performance planning is crucial in order to design training schedules that fit the needs and commitment of each athlete.  Training for U16s and U18s includes all four disciplines of Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super G and Downhill.

Abilities

All athletes must be comfortable skiing the entire mountain in all snow conditions and need to have prior race experience. Athletes who are not comfortable skiing the entire mountain (including the Bowl) on all snow conditions and do not have sufficient race experience may be mixed with the Regional Race Team. The coaches of both the U14 Teams and the U16/U18 Teams work closely together to better evaluate and accommodate different ski and race levels.
