The Youth Ski League is a junior development program open to skiers age 7-10.  These skiers are expected to comfortably navigate all terrain at Mountain Creek.  This program is designed for those athletes who seek continued technical instruction in both free skiing and race training.  This program is a stepping-stone for athletes planning to race USSA.  This program is based at Mountain Creek but may travel up to 3 times each season for local races with other regional developmental programs.

Prerequisites:

The Youth Ski League is designed for athletes aged 7-10 who have a desire to race but are not yet ready for the more competitive USSA Alpine Development Programs. Athletes must be able to ski parallel and be able to ride the lifts unassisted. The Youth Ski League is an entry level race development program, so athletes must have the skill and desire to ski the whole mountain while in control. If you are unsure of your child’s abilities relative to this program, please contact the race department and a coach will happily evaluate their abilities and skill.

Equipment:

Athletes are expected to provide their own equipment, including helmets which are mandatory for all training and racing events. If you have questions on equipment, please contact your local ski shop or MCRacing@MountainCreek.com

Training:

Athletes receive training by qualified coaching staff consisting of USSA certified coaches, PSIA certified instructors, and advanced level skiers. Training consists of guided freeskiing, organized drills and utilizing race equipment. Throughout the season there will be optional race events both locally and at neighboring resorts. These events are not included in the program and training may not be available on those dates. Training is based out of the Vernon Race room in the Cobblestone Village but coaches utilize all of the resort’s terrain.

Training Times:

YSL meets weekends at 8am in the Cobblestone Village race room and is dismissed at 2:00pm.  Training begins December 16th (weather permitting) and continues through March 11th.  This program is based out of the Cobblestone Village race room at Vernon Peak but will travel the entire resort.

Racing Passes

Participation in all Race Programs requires either a valid lift ticket or season pass.  As a frequent visitor to Mountain Creek for training and racing, the All Access Season Pass is by far the best value. If either you or your child is enrolled in a Mountain Creek Race Program, you automatically qualify for a discount on your Season Pass at a special rate.
