Snowstar Ski Team's Development program is a great introduction to ski racing. If you are an advanced beginner to intermediate skier and want to develop your turning skills and technique, the the Developmental team is a good way to start with the team. In Developmental you will learn to skills and techniques necessary for ski racing the Slalom and Giant Slalom disciplines.
Development athletes will work with our coaches and volunteers to develop their skills in a short period of time. Our developmental skiers often go from beginner to skilled introductory Giant Slalom and Slalom racers in just one season. Once they can navigate the race courses, we encourage them to move up to the race team. On the race team, athletes will participate in races and further develop their skills in a fun and competitive environment.
The Snowstar Ski Team Race program turns good skiers into great skiers. In Race, skiers further develop techniques, skills, and tactics from our skilled Race Coaches to improve their performance and times on Giant Slalom and Slalom race courses. Athletes on the race team become expert level skiers.
The race program focuses on drills and and gate training for Slalom and Giant Slalom. Race is geared for honing racing skills in preparation for participation in the Wijara race league.
