North Series Travel

North Series Team’s primary focus is on U10 (8-9 years old) and U12 skiers (10-11 years old). The North Series Team programming is also designed for U14 and U16 skiers who are either less experienced with alpine ski racing or who prefer the lighter travel schedule the North Series offers.

Bogus Basin season passes are not included and must be purchased from Bogus Basin.
