The Super Sliders cross country program accepts children at age 4 and the Cisco Kids downhill and Snowboard programs at age 6. Season-long junior teams for all ages are offered in Snowboarding, Biathlon, Alpine and Nordic skiing. According to program director Ryan Colleran, “our Training Center programs start at the entry level and progress to competition locally, and as high as the Olympic level. Our goal is to create opportunities for youth and families to enjoy a lifetime of winter sports in the mountains”.
For intermediate skiers ages 10-15 there is the All-Mountain Devo downhill team that explores the mountain at Boreal, skis the terrain parks and builds skiing skills. Cross Country skiers ages 9-18 can join the Sonics team or the Devo/Comp team for fitness and training for competitions. Colleran also said, “the upper end athletes compete regionally and at National Champions in Alpine, Cross Country, Biathlon and Snowboarding.
The Training Center offers a unique opportunity for youth to experience all the winter sports.
