Athletes will learn to assess conditions and will make decisions as a team. Snow safety, outdoor leadership, route-finding, and big mountain skiing technique is the focus.
Athletes who have been in the program for two years or more have the opportunity to join our Pro Track Team.
All athletes have the opportunity to compete in IFSA big mountain competitions; including the Hidden Valley Hoedown at Brundage Mountain.
