Alpine Ski Racing Program (D-Team) General Info.


On Saturdays we work with skiers aged 6 to 18 and on Sundays we work with skiers aged 9 to 18.

The D-Team (Development Team) program is open to all skiers interested interested in ski racing. Skiers participate in both slalom and giant slalom events with racers from other ski areas. Practice and races are held on Saturdays and Sundays beginning November 18th 2017 through March 4th 2018.

The Powder Ridge Ski Team has an excellent coaching staff to help students learn to race and to fine tune their skills. All the coaches have training in ski instruction and ski racing. The many staff have years of coaching experience and continue their mission for the pure love of kids and the sport of skiing. There will be assistance and time with coaches to help new racers and their families get started easily.

The D-Team is an excellent way for young skiers and their families to further their skiing abilities along with developing new friendships. Requirements: Racers must have the ability to manage themselves while at Powder Ridge and at other ski areas we race at or have parent supervision. With the number of racers and the amount of space involved it is impossible for our coaches to supervise on a one to one basis with each racer. Racers must also be able to ride a chair lift without assistance and cannot hold a current USSA card.

Practice Time:
Saturdays: 10:00am to 3:00pm
Sundays: Noon to 4:00pm
(Race schedules are located in the team manual)

Team Coaching Fees:
$325 before Nov. 1st and $375 after Nov. 1st
Participation in both teams: $520 before Nov. 1st and $600 after Nov. 1st
