U12 Program

The U12 Program acts as a bridge between the Entry Level Program (U8/U10) and the Development Level Program (U14/U16). U12 skiers spend a greater amount of time training in gates than the U10 Level, but the fun and games aspect of the fundamental level are still included.

U12 skiers build on the fundamental skills learned in the U10 level and develop their versatile skiing ability. Although racing is a central feature of the program the consolidation of beginner level skills is the focus. This is done through a mix of gate training and all mountain skiing.

The U12 program commences in December and usually finishes in March. There are two regional races, a number of away trips to Whistler and a year end provincial race in Sun Peaks, all of which are optional.

U12 skiers can chose to attend from 1 to 4 days per week, one or two weekend days and one or two week nights. Skiers meet their coaches ready to ski every morning at 8:30 and are picked up a 15:00 on the weekend and every Tuesday or Thursday evening between 18:00 and 21:00 Between drop off and pickup your child will be fully supervised by our professional coaching staff.
