All Mountain Team
For advanced beginner skiers, who are able to ski independently off of the blue chair. Athletes are with a dedicated coach for two hours a day, Saturdays and Sundays.
For those with advanced intermediate skills looking for an introduction to ski racing. Athletes are divided into two groups – one group trains and participate in races, while the other trains at Bousquet to work on skill development.
high school training
For High School racers hoping to gain confidence and improve in the County League. This group serves a variety of ski levels – from intermediate skiers who have never raced before, to those that have race experience but are looking for a less intense and time consuming racing option.
Under 19 Bousquet Intramural League
Open registration for anyone currently in 7-12th grade. This program is designed for moderate to advanced skiers either looking to learn or improve on their racing abilities. For the month of February, practices will be for 2hrs twice a week. Also, the third day with an intramural race will be offered midweek, Monday-Thursday after school so the athletes can get some fresh air and race in a safe and educational environment. This program can be combined with the High School Training program, which is offered on Saturdays only for 4hrs or can be done separately.
This team is for early intermediate skiers. Skiers should be independent on the blue and new chairs, and able to comfortably ski all easy blue trails. With a solid understanding of how to ski, the Developmental team coach takes athletes all over the mountain, and encourages them to grow out of their comfort zone in terms of both trails and conditions.
For experienced racers. Most have graduated through the Interclub program with the basics of ski racing and technique. This age group is where we begin to focus on the mental aspects of ski racing as well as fine-tuning form.
These athletes have been in our program the longest, and it takes time and commitment to get here. There are travel, budget and time requirements. League races are held in Connecticut and Massachusetts.
