Important JDT Updates

Junior Development Team

Swiss Valley Racing for ages 5-14 years old

JDT is open to all skiers ages 5 to 14, from beginner to expert. Staffed by a team of Professional Skiers & Certified Instructors, coaching is focused on developing race skills and general skiing ability. Team members can participate as little or as much as they like. Family time is encouraged with parent clinics being held during practice, race day family discounts, group hotel stays, and team travel. Parents are encouraged to participate in the complimentary Tuesday Night Parent Ski Clinics, held at the same time as JDT practice. Our Parent Instructor plans a fun lesson each week and also spends time discussing race basics for maximum parent involvement. Lesson content varies.

Program Goals

Swiss Valley Racing – Junior Development (Race) Team is designed for kids, ages 5-14, of all skiing ability levels. The JDT program’s primary goal is to give young skiers a chance to learn the art of ski racing and improve their overall skiing skills while having fun and making new friends.
