Development Level Program

For older kids who have completed the Entry Level Program, or for those who haven’t but would like to get involved in competitive alpine ski racing, we offer a full set of BC Alpine sponsored and FIS sanctioned programs starting at 12 years old.

Our U14, for ages 12-13, and the U16, ages 14-15, programs are aimed at proficient young skiers who want to pursue racing.

Our new U18 program is an extension of our U16 program, for young skiers aged 16 to 17, who wish to continue training and racing with Mount Seymour without the commitment and cost associated with international FIS level.

The focus is on a higher level of skiing and coaching with skiers spending more hours on the snow. Training takes place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. As well the athletes are given the opportunity to participate in regular races offered at a variety of mountains in British Columbia.

Training at this level is more frequent and more demanding than the Entry Level Program, but the coaching staff strives to maintain the fun factor. Our U14 / U16 Head Coach Peter Krasula was competitive at the World Cup level and has a great rapport with kids in the program. Coaches encourage students to grow individually and gain confidence in their racing ability. Race results are recorded through the ski season and the race season culminates in the final provincial races.

Our racers join their team mates in overnight trips to the various race venues under the care of our coaches. Skiers are encouraged to practice self discipline, understand the value of personal growth and enjoy skiing all under the watchful eyes of caring skilled coaches.

Coaching fees do not include race costs or lift passes.
