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.

Location

Summit Central.

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. NO EXCEPTIONS!
