Comprised of 7-9 year old athletes, the U 10 program is organized to teach fundamental skiing skills and to introduce ski racing to the young athlete. Groups are small and emphasis is placed on the technical fundamentals of skiing that apply to all types of alpine skiing. This is accomplished through free skiing over the entire Jackson Hole Mountain Resort on Saturdays, as well as two afternoon/evenings of training at Snow King per week. Fundamental skills will be taught including balance, edging, body position, and more, as well as the introduction of the tactical fundamentals of racing... and always having fun! For training purposes athletes will often be arranged in groups of 5-7 athletes per coach to facilitate a productive learning environment, groups are dynamic but are generally based on skill, speed, and social needs. Participants should be able to put on their own ski equipment, load and ride the lift alone, and ski at an intermediate level. Racing introduction will focus predominantly on modern giant slalom technique. Athletes will work with a team of coaches dedicated to the U 10 group.
