Development Team Parent Guide

Winter 2011

A Guide for Development Parents

Welcome to the Thunder Ridge Development Race Program! The Development Team is comprised of skiers ages 6-9.  The primary focus is on developing good FUNdamental skiing skills, which are then applied to FUN (non-competitive) drills and games that will help to develop slalom and giant slalom racing skills.   Although these skiers do not race, they are a vital aspect of the Thunder Ridge Race Team.  Our “Devos” are the future skiers of our Race Team!
Please note — Participants in this program must be able to ski intermediate terrain and ride all lifts unsupervised.

Registration Forms

There are 3 forms that you need to be concerned with:  1) registration form, 2) medical form, 3) behavioral contract.  Please make sure that these are completed and returned to Thunder Ridge Ski Area with your payment.
