U16 - Ability

U16 Ability Program

The U16 ability program will offer athletes the option for weekday and weekend training on snow and dryland. This program is for athletes who love skiing, the competitive nature of ski racing, and have a passion for learning new skill sets that will set them up for a lifetime of success. Full-time athletes will spend more time in gates, drill courses, race simulations, and freeskiing. Athletes participate in the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Rocky Mountain Division competitions, including the SYNC Cup series and Junior Championship events. Participation in the dryland program is encouraged in order to establish a base of fitness to help skiers minimize injury risk and ski their best, but those playing fall sports are encouraged to and their dryland plan can be adapted. Athletes that participate in full-time programming set an excellent platform for continued success and transition into FIS and the U-19 ability program. Although training plans could change due to COVID-19 and other elements outside of our control, this program trains on-snow most Tuesday/Thursday afternoons, some Monday/Wednesday afternoons, and most Saturdays/Sundays all day. Training times/days vary throughout the season as we are periodizing with our race schedule. For more information contact Joonas Rasanen at 303-325-1132 or joonas@lertprograms.com

  • Dryland Dates: TBA (usually mid-August through mid-May)

  • May Camp Dates: TBA (usually first two weekends in may Friday-Sunday)
  • Summer Ski Camp: TBA (usually early June for 10 days)- not included in Core program fees
  • Ski Pass Information: Eldora Mountain is on the IKON pass, therefore the IKON pass is a great option since the majority of our training will take place at Eldora. The U-14 program races throughout Colorado, therefore it’s a good idea to look at the other bundled options as well.
