Hello Team Afton USSA,

We're on the eve of racing - are ya ready?! Well, of course it's been limited for some of you on how much preparation you've been able to do, but it's our attitude that racing IS TRAINING! But, we do understand if you decide not to race. Anyway, here's the plan for Sunday - be early rather than late. We may have trainers, and we may not have trainers. Please check in with coaches to see what's up. The schedule is here:

Attention: ALL Team Afton USSA, Associates, Rising Stars! Afton is re-opening this Thursday - so we're not wasting any time: COME OUT AND SKI WITH US!   WHEN: Thursday evening, Dec.
Our Mission Team Afton loves ski racing, we believe it teaches valuable lessons in a unique way. Our mission is to help our members succeed in ski racing, whether a high school racer or an international competitor. We provide a comprehensive high quality program designed to help athletes of all abilities achieve their racing goals.

ARC is a recreational program that introduces participants aged 7 to 18 (jr ARC is for participants aged 5 & 6) to alpine ski racing in a fun and friendly environment. Over the 11 weeks, athletes will improve their fundamental skiing skills while free-skiing and will work on race tactics during gate training. Athletes will participate as part of Team Afton in four Midwest Snowsports Development League (MDSL) race days at Afton or other nearby ski areas.

Our Mission:

The Afton Alps Development Team’s mission is to give young snowboarders and twin tippers an opportunity to develop and enhance their skills through participation in a high quality program that emphasizes safety, fun, and learning. We are dedicated to helping athletes achieve their goals and reach or exceed their expectations. Our program’s design challenges each athlete to do his/her best while maintaining the enjoyment of riding/skiing.
