Mavericks
(5 and 6 Year Olds)
Where young rippers soar!
Tuition $1850*
*To provide smaller groups and proper coaching

Program Details

The Mavericks Team is calling all skiing rippers ages 5 to 6 to join us for an epic season in 2024 - 25!  

The Mavericks are the next generation of rippers. Athletes will learn the fundamentals of all mountain skiing and learn the basics of ski racing. They’ll have a ton of fun with their primary coach each week to progress and learn at any pace.  

The goal of the Mavericks Team is to teach all athletes solid fundamentals by passing off certain skills to move onto the Competition Team when they are ready.

 

 

Athlete Requirements to Join

  • Confidently ski blues and greens

  • Load the lift with minimal assistance and ease

  • Bring the desire, attitude, stamina, and maturity to learn and train as part of a team
     

 

Mavericks Training Info 

  • Focus on all-mountain skiing and skill development

  • Engage in drills and challenges designed to push skill boundaries

  • Introduce basic racing skills on Tuesday nights with drill courses and fun races

  • Enjoy small group ratios of 4:1, or even fewer

 

Required Equipment - Ensure your little ripper is equipped properly

  • Combi or Multi-Event race ski

  • High-quality boots that fit properly.  Do NOT buy boots to "grow into."

  • High-quality helmet for head and brain protection - yes, it matters what kind of helmet your kid wears

  • NO RENTALS!

What type and quality of gear your athlete has will play a huge part in their progress on the team. Poor fitting and improper gear will be a waste of your time and our time as coaches. We cannot teach proper skiing skills to athletes on improper equipment. 

Gear up for success! 

We have been doing this a long time and can tell you 100% of the time, when you buy improper gear, you end up paying more down the road.​
