The Alpine Ski Racing program is designed for young adults and adult athletes who want to improve their skiing abilities and optionally participate in race programs. Skiers’ ages range from the early twenties to mid-forties and have some cognitive disabilities that can also result in some decreased motor function. The goal of the program is to improve basic skills in all terrain, to teach teamwork, and to gain confidence. Some athletes compete in the Special Olympics, and Para-Alpine events as well as regularly scheduled local races. Race courses are used as a tool to improve technique, timing, balance, and confidence. A typical day consists of 6-8 runs on intermediate to advanced groomed runs (blues and an occasional easy black), with a 1 hour lunch break.
