ARC is a recreational program that introduces participants aged 7 to 18 (jr ARC is for participants aged 5 & 6) to alpine ski racing in a fun and friendly environment. Over the 11 weeks, athletes will improve their fundamental skiing skills while free-skiing and will work on race tactics during gate training. Athletes will participate as part of Team Afton in four Midwest Snowsports Development League (MDSL) race days at Afton or other nearby ski areas.
The Afton Alps Development Team’s mission is to give young snowboarders and twin tippers an opportunity to develop and enhance their skills through participation in a high quality program that emphasizes safety, fun, and learning. We are dedicated to helping athletes achieve their goals and reach or exceed their expectations. Our program’s design challenges each athlete to do his/her best while maintaining the enjoyment of riding/skiing.
