About the Program:
This is for advanced students seeking the challenge,
enjoyment and confidence that racing will develop in each skier.
Practice courses and other race training drills are employed
in a safe, and supportive environment. We offer the opportunity
to improve at your own pace. If you are interested in learning
how to run gates or are already an experienced 'gate-basher',
our racing program is for you!
Class typically meets at 12:30pm and runs about 2 hrs.
Required Advanced Skills Test
You must pass a proficiency test to demonstrate that you can ski
in control on Blue terrain. The test will
be conducted in a marked corridor approximately 30 ft. wide
and 300 ft. long set on Blue terrain by the Gallery Lift.
To PASS, a Ski Racing Student will be expected to:
- control your speed by making linked turns across the fall line
- make linked turns in both directions (left/right)
- stay inside the corridor from top to bottom with no falls or stops
Students will get up to 3 attempts on the course during the testing period.
Students who do NOT pass the skills test or MISS the test
must switch to Recreational Skiing.
