The Youth Ski League Team is designed for the racer who wants more coaching and contact days than the traditional Buddy Werner program, yet isn't ready to commit to the full Ski Team program. The YSL program is for USSA-registered skiers aged 8 to 16 years who want to continue their development of ski racing-skills with a USSA registered coach. Participants meet with ski team coaches on Saturday and half day Sunday, or will race in several away USSA YSL races on Sundays. Schedule permitting, YSL may also elect to enter Roaring Fork Valley Series races (with Aspen and Powderhorn). Begins Saturday, January 7th through Sunday, March 19 at the YSL Finals in Eldora. Skiers are instructed in athletic, physical, tactical, and mental aspects of ski racing and team participation with an emphasis on learning slalom, giant slalom, and SkillsQuest by experienced coaches. YSL and Part-Time racers may add Winter Break Camp for an additional fee. May add Big Wednesday after school program for an additional fee. Requires work deposit.
