Ho-Ho-Ho, We're tickled to announce our 2nd season with a post-Christmas VAIL training project. This is a U14 and older project (younger skiers may apply – but need approval from program director).
Though details are limited at this time, we hope to be updating with more info soon.
For those of you who are in, we're glad you've committed to this project. It shows an understanding that: you can't just hope or wish to ski better - you have to commit to the time and work that will help make it happen. Sounds like work? It’s more fun when you perform better; so, look at it this way: you're working toward having more fun!
Notes on our trip -
In 2016, Doug Nordmeyer and Ross Baker led a small but eager group of young skiers on an adventure in the mountains. Please consider joining this unique training opportunity.
