Participants may have the option of competing at one or two competitions held in the area (Tamarack, Brundage, etc..) Competitions carry an additional cost, not included in the team fees.
Skiers must be comfortable skiing all of Bogus Basin. Both the Big Mountain and Park & Pipe Progression teams train Saturday & Sunday from 9:00 am - 2:30 pm, with a parent-supervised lunch hour.
Big Mountain Progression
Team members should have the desire to work hard in order to gain experience as Big Mountain Athletes. This team will focus on training based on the judged criteria for IFSA competitions, becoming more versatile skiers/riders and emphasizing the importance of developing mountain awareness skills.
Park & Pipe Progression
Athletes on this team should love to ski in the terrain park and skiing POW when the conditions call for it. This team will focus on learning skills to hit jumps, rails, and other jib features. USASA is the competition series for the Slopestyle Park & Pipe programs
A Bogus Basin Season Pass is required and not included in the team fees.
Licensing - is required to participate in Slopestyle and/or Big Mountain Competitions. Slopestyle licensing is through USASA and Big Mountain licensing is with IFSA (International Free Skiers Association)
Each competition, camp, and/or travel for training has a separate cost that is in addition to tuition/team fees. Trip fees are due prior to the event. Parents are still responsible for trips/coaches fees when canceling participating less than 5 days prior to the event (after the trip has been invoiced.)
Athlete travel is arranged by parents or guardians. The team typically arrives a day early to the competition venue to give the athletes time to inspect and ski the competition venue.
U.S. Ski and Snowboard and the U.S. Center for SafeSport provide many free resources for parents who want to educate themselves and their children on Athlete Safety.
As an example, parents are encouraged to complete the Parent’s Guide to Misconduct in Sports. We also encourage parents to take an age-appropriate SafeSport course from the menu below with their children.
The Progression Teams focus on continued skill development, respect for the mountain, and having fun. Coaches work to ensure athletes develop as skiers and as people, learning to be part of a team and thrive in a more independent and training-oriented environment.
Space is limited to 12 athletes each
The season 23.24 training Schedule is Saturday & Sunday, December 9- March 10. There is no training on December 23-26.
