The Winter Park Alpine Team is a leader in providing the environment for athletes to reach their fullest potential. In the last few seasons:
The fulltime program has consistently developed members of the United States Ski Team, Junior World Championships competitors, NCAA All-Americans and numerous Junior Olympic medalists.
The Fulltime Alpine Team is a year-around highly intensive program dedicated to the serious, motivated and experienced racer. Our program offers a forum where dedicated athletes can achieve their highest aspirations in sport; while at the same time not forgetting our program philosophy of “to achieve ones’ highest potential as an athlete, person, and competitor”. The team trains regularly September through April with several optional summer camps and projects both on and off snow. Participants also take part in supervised dryland sessions throughout the entire year.
Winter training takes place in the afternoons on Tuesdays through Thursdays, and all day Fridays through Sundays. (East Grand Middle School students train the aforementioned days except for Wednesdays.) Middle school and high school athletes enroll in the East Grand School District or alternative education programs where schedules are arranged for core classes to take place in the morning, and student/athletes are transported to the ski area at lunch time for afternoon training. East Grand is on a 4-day school week, so skiers have a full day of training on Friday - it doesn't get any better!
Post graduate athletes will have the opportunity to train on weekday mornings for more individually focused sessions. On-snow training in Colorado begins in late October off-site and the first weekend of November at Winter Park. Training takes place mainly on our FIS homologated race trails, but we have access to a variety of venues all over the mountain to simulate other venue’s environments.
Fulltime Team Winter Park requires advance approval from the Alpine Director. Commitment and attitude are the most important attributes we're looking for; with dedication and a positive outlook, skiing performance will take care of itself. In addition to the program registration, new skiers to the fulltime program should contact Mike Bowman at , the Alpine Director to obtain the application for fulltime consideration approval to join the program.
