Developmental Programs

Non Competitive Ages 5-12

 

Our Development Program is a non-competitive ski program designed to expose athletes to all Team Breckenridge competitive teams (Alpine, Freeride & Freestyle) in order to understand their true passions.  This is done while working on solid fundamental skiing skills that will translate to any skiing discipline they decide to pursue.  Athletes will explore the entire mountain with varied terrain under the instruction of our certified coaches. We will provide a supportive team structure to facilitate friendships while making practice fun. Our coaching staff promotes camaraderie, teamwork, and sportsmanship with safety and fun in mind!

Children are grouped by age and ability. All participants must be able to ski intermediate (blue) terrain with skidded parallel turns.  All children are required to wear a helmet at all times.

Space is limited to maintain small group sizes.

A Season Pass must be purchased to participate in the program.
