Do you know of a younger athlete, age 6-10, that wants to be a part of our team? Gromlins, is just for them! Gromlins is for learning fundamentals, having a ton of fun, and acquiring basic tactics found in alpine racing, freestyle, park and freeride. By exploring all of our disciplines, young athletes can discover their passion and, depending on their age, can continue onto the Freeride, Alpine Racing, or Freestyle teams.
This is a 10-week Saturday program starting in December, held at Purgatory, (along with 6-night training sessions held at Hesperus and Chapman, TBD) from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. Night sessions are 1.5 hours and held from 4:30-6:00pm during the weekday.
In two week blocks we will focus on a learning techniques of alpine racing, freestlye skiing, park and pipe, and freeride.
