The ALL MOUNTAIN RANGERS is a weekly program training on Saturdays from December 21 through March 21. Training is conducted on Saturdays from 9:30 AM – 3:00 PM throughout the season, plus a 4-day camp on December 26 -29 during Christmas break. Participation in the Tommy Moe Race Series is encouraged. Coaches concentrate on teaching the fundamentals of alpine skiing with a focus on developing the skills and confidence to ski all terrain and all conditions. An introduction to competition gate skiing is included.
Participants are divided by age and ability into groups of 8 or fewer. A general breakdown of the season regimen is 60% all mountain skiing, 30% skill development & 10% gate training. For participants seeking additional gate training and fundamental drills, weekday training is available on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Head Coach Roy Loman for more information about weekday training.
The minimum age for All Mountain Rangers participation is 7. Exceptions may be considered on a case by case basis.
All Mountain Rangers participants are expected to ride chair lifts without adult supervision, and to be able to ski most runs on the mountain in fair or better conditions.
