(For alpine skiers ages 5-15 )
The Buddy Werner Program is a recreational racing program, the goal of which is to make participants better skiers. The focus of this program is on fun, skills, etiquette, safety, and an introduction to racing.Buddy Werner is the most affordable and fun way for your kids to learn skiing. Participants should be able to ski down one of the blue runs.
The program runs on Sundays from early January through the end of February. Participants race for individual times, not in a head-to-head competition format. Each participant will have two runs on the racecourse on three Sundays. Races will be held on Wonderbump, starting just above the midway road. Racers will be required to wear their assigned racing bibs for each race (and every training day). Racers may inspect the racecourse, but they cannot ski the racecourse before their race. Each participant will be placed in a group of similar age and ability for their coached lesson. The lessons will vary from week to week with the emphasis on fun and improving skills and technique.
Individual awards will be handed out at the end of the day on race days.
