Berkshire East Ski Team
Berkshire East Alpine Training Program is a season long ski program for athletes ages 8-19. The programs goals are to develop sound skiing skills combined with a love for the sport that allows a participant to enjoy alpine skiing for a lifetime. Our philosophy is that the pursuit of Alpine Racing is an exciting and engaging way to achieve these goals. The program is roughly divided into two components: The Development Team (ages 8-12) and the Berkshire East Ski Team (Competitive Level) At all levels skill development is the primary focus. The program stresses the basic fundamentals of skiing and incorporates drills, free skiing and gate training into our athlete development. Please note: Pricing for the Alpine Training Program does not include lift ticket or Season Pass cost. All parents of youth signed up for the Alpine Training Program will be required to work a minimum of two Berkshire East Ski Club races during the season.
Development Alpine Team
The DEVO team is for skiers focusing on developing sound skills and the technical aspects of skiing in a fun environment. Participants are matched with a coach based on their ability level. One coach oversees a small group of kids whose skills and abilities compliments each other. This coach works with them on a weekly basis, helping them to become proficient in the use of Berkshire East’s terrain features and encouraging the development of their skills. The DEVO team is a stepping stone towards the competition team. READ MORE AND REGISTER HERE
Athletes on the Berkshire East Ski Team usually compete in United States Ski Association Tri State events and/or with their school teams. Training activities are based on preparation for these events. BEST groups meet every Saturday and Sunday from opening day until mid-March. We also try to have training on all school holidays and vacation days. Training sessions are in the morning and the afternoon. Training schedule is planned according to the USSA skill development and gate training guidelines. Athletes not skiing in USSA events may find an occasional Sunday when no coaches are at the mountain. READ MORE AND REGISTER HERE
