racer development

For the youngest skiers. Racer Development or "Devo" is an entry level program designed to give skiers a solid base and fundamentals to grow into successful skiers whether that is on the race course or just freeskiing. (Ages 6 & up).

FREESTYLE 

The freestyle ski program focuses on aerial maneuvers, terrain park features, as well as all-mountain and mogul skiing.  Coaches use Granite Peak's three terrain parks as training grounds to develop, encourage and improve skiers techniques and forms while having fun with new friends.  (Athletes should be experienced in park skiing).
