An Overview of Our Junior Racing Program:
The Timber Ridge Junior Development Team is a competitive and fun program for athletes between 5 and 14 years old. We’ve designed our program to introduce young skiers to ski racing and to provide goals and encouragement as they progress. We offer well over 25 hours of on hill training/instruction as we focus on the fundamentals of skiing and ski racing. Our program will help to improve the skills of a young skier for participation in High School racing, Nastar® racing and recreational free skiing.
