Our in house club team trains alongside our “travel” team on Friday evenings from 4pm to 7pm and Saturdays from 9:30am to 3pm. Club team members are not set apart from the travel team in any way and receive the same high level coaching throughout the season. While some choose to remain in the Club program and enjoy the benefits of developing high level skiing skills that will last a lifetime, many use this program as a trial or test to see if they would be interested in making the commitment to more demanding USSA race league Jr. Team. Please direct any specific questions to Andrew Minier at andy@kbski.com.
