Telluride Development Squad is a 7-session youth ski and snowboard program offered through the Telluride Ski and Snowboard School. The Squad’s goal is to foster a fun and safe learning environment, while developing skiers and snowboarders who have a true love for the sport, the mountains, and Telluride. Each session, The Squad will promote team-building and model safe mountain tactics in a non-competitive environment. We will be offering Snowboard Instruction for 5 & 6 year old First Time to Level 8 students.
"This is a tremendous opportunity for kids in the region to develop a lifelong love of skiing and riding in a program that promotes team building, mountain safety and learning in a non-competitive environment."
Ski School Director
Each day your son and/or daughter will be skiing or riding with their coach from 10am to 3:30pm, fueling a life-long passion for their sport! For our youngest member of the Squad, appropriate breaks and snack times will be built into the day to accommodate the needs of the kid.
We will again be offering Terrain Park, Big Mountain, and Race training into the second half of the program for those age groups and abilities that are appropriate for learning these disciplines with the goal being to create a well-rounded skier or snowboarder out of your child.
