Nub’s Nob Junior Alpine Racing (JART) provides a club wide development program to educate and train our younger racers, ages 5 to 14, to their greatest potential. We love racing and so do athletes of all ages!
JART will use fundamental skill progressions and technical and tactical lessons to instruct and support various race levels from basic to dynamic and will teach life lessons through team involvement, athletic endurance and emotional morals. Areas of concentration will include enhancing overall ski technique; developing balance, edging and pressure skills; and teaching course tactics for slalom, giant slalom and Kombi.
New! Sunday Race Academy for JART Members only. Alpine ski racers are only as good in the gates as they are out of the gates! Here’s an opportunity to focus on your skiing and giving yourself an opportunity to see better results in the gates. Each week you will ski in groups with one of Nub’s Nob Winter Sports School Professional Instructors. Classes will last 1 ½ hours and will focus directly on skiing drills to enhance race techniques. The focus will be on improving skiing fundamentals neccessary for successful racing and No gates will be set Sundays. This Academy is available for registered JART Members only and will be capped at 15 racers.
