The Full Time U16 Program will partner with the EMSC U18 / PG program for progression based fundamentals, while increasing training course opportunities through weekday training. Weekday training for FT athletes will be comprised of shared full length course sets with the U18/PG, and occasional shared lanes with the NCAA CU Division 1 Ski Team. Weekday morning training sessions incorporate Race Day simulation with prepped surface, slip/inspection, timed training/ video, and veteran athlete mentorship opportunities. Focus on increased elements as they relate to race line in both GS and SL tempo, will benefit the FT U16 athlete as they prepare for upper level competition. Additional weekday morning speed elements and increased opportunities aside from Holiday Camp projects will provide SG training, sectionals, full length course sets as appropriate and with calendar/competition prep. Pre season and Post Season travel to training opportunities will be held at Loveland Resort, beginning Mid October and concluding after weekend May Training at Loveland, A-Basin.
