Team Summit Alpine Program

Our Alpine program gives athletes the direction needed for them to reach their full ski racing potential. Team Summit concentrates on building the basics of stance, balance and over-all race strategies and tactics through team and group structure, individual focus, facilities and infrastructure, and the opportunity to blend school and athletics.  Athletes participate in a range of local youth ski league competitions for our development athletes through US National Championships for our elite. We strive to put every athlete on top of their personal podiums and help get them where they want to go in their ski racing career.

Team Summit Alpine strongly believes that each athlete has their own path, their own needs, and their own personal goals.  We respect that by remaining very “athlete centered” in our approach to coaching.  Through goal setting, we help them to get to the top of their own personal podium by targeting their individual strengths and weaknesses and giving feedback and focus based on that.  Though we do have a structure to our programs throughout the season, we disagree that there is a “canned” lesson or strategy that will be productive for all athletes.  As athletic coaches of youth, we must remain flexible.  Utilizing the great facility that we operate, a wide variety of terrain offered by our 4 partner mountains, and a full time experienced staff, we are able to focus on the whole athlete and help them to achieve their individual goals.

Team Summit Colorado is able to offer training and racing on some of the best competition and free-ski terrain in the world. Headquartered in Summit County Colorado, we offer a unique four mountain training program that includes:

Arapahoe Basin
Breckenridge
Keystone
Copper Mountain, which is the home to the US Alpine Ski Team’s Speed Center

Because of the naturally long ski season of A-Basin, extended night training under the lights of Keystone, a variety of program options including Weekend and Full-Time and a dedicated staff, Team Summit can offer any athlete great training opportunities.

Team Summit is also proud to offer an Academic Athletics Program in partnership with the Summit County School District’s Early Release Program. This program allows the dedicated competitor an opportunity to blend academics and athletics while competing at the highest levels. This program offers comprehensive early season conditioning and training, full-time training and competing during the winter on-snow season and post-season on-snow training and conditioning.
