HART Offers Alpine Racing program for youth ages 6-14
Our goal is to provide the opportunity to young skiers to develop a lifetime of skills that would make them great racers and free riders. We will create a very special environment of success for the skiers of all abilities.
Winter HART camp is a five day introduction to ski racing and ski team fun! The camp integrates basic skiing and racing fundamentals through fun drills, gate training, and free skiing for optimal skill acquisition. The camp finishes with the fun HART New Year Giant Slalom Ski Race on the last day. Children that can comfortably ski blue runs and load the chair are eligible for this 5-day program. A child can decide to join the team afterwards, by upgrading to one of our Junior Development Teams.
Program fee is $330 if registered by Dec. 15 and $380 after.
Requirements: Ski gear, helmet. Skier must be able to ride chair lift and make turns on intermediate terrain (blue runs).
