d team

The Wild Mountain D-Teams are weekly programs that offer a fun introduction to the world of skiing and snowboarding competition. The “D” stands for “Development,” as our talented coaching staff focus on more than just scores and times. They put an emphasis on rounding out the student’s skill sets as all mountain skiers and snowboarders, while helping apply these skills to their speed and control on the race course and competition stage.

The D-Team is for skiers age 6-18 and snowboarders 8-18. The D-Team program is designed as an introduction to the more technical aspects of skiing and snowboarding, and is not a program for first-timers. Please see the Wild Cat Club for information on our weekly children’s learn-to-ski program.

Our coaches are very goal oriented, and place a lot of emphasis on the following areas of athlete development:

  • The fundamental and technical aspects of skiing and snowboarding to provide a solid platform as the elements of racing or park riding are introduced and refined.
  • Safety awareness and slope side courtesy.
  • Physical and mental preparation, discipline and conditioning.
  • Good sportsmanship, fair play and respect for teammates and competitors.
  • Teamwork, friendship, self confidence and FUN!
