The Nancy Greene Ski League is the “FUNdamental” stage of ski racing for children 5 – 11 years of age.
Over the ten week program, athletes will learn to ski Red and Granite Mountains in supervised groups, with an emphasis on safe skiing and team building. They can expect guided free skiing, focused skill development and an introduction to the ski racing environment. Each year the children participate within their club in team and individual competitions.
All participants must be at least 5 years of age and capable of getting on and off the lifts without assistance. Participants should have a few years of skiing experience and be capable of skiing runs such as the Back Trail on Red Mountain and the Main Run on Granite Mountain. Older participants (8 and up) should be capable of runs such as The Cliff on Red Mountain and the Towers on Granite Mountain.
Entry level 10 week programs commence the first weekend of January and end in the second week of March. Races take place on Sundays throughout five ski areas in the west Kootenays. All races are optional and at no additional cost. We also offer an optional additional 3-day Christmas Camp, with a “Bring a Friend Day” as well as other club events throughout the year.
