Alpine Teams

All of our alpine teams have a philosophy of developing all-around skiing to enhance the development of the technical skills. Athletes develop technical skiing in all types of terrain and be introduced to structured gate training. These teams will prepare athletes to compete in local events within Alberta and test their skills in a fun, positive environment. Our coaches strive to deliver an entry level race program that will instill a passion for skiing.
REC Teams

All of the WinSport Alpine REC programs are designed to develop young athletes in the world of alpine racing for the first time or provide a leisure activity for skiers looking to develop their skills. This program will focus on developing the technical skills needed for alpine racing and introduce the participants to all styles of racing through gate training. Programs will utilize other terrain areas such as the west terrain park, halfpipe and moguls to further develop fundamental skills. This program is designed to be fun and progressive, with alpine skiing at its core, in a non-competitive environment.

Your young skier will spend their time becoming more aggressive and confident on the snow by increasing their speed, control and mobility. Your child’s coach will create a safe, fun and educational learning environment which will enable them to hone their skills and move through their season-long training plan.
