  2. Race Teams expand on skills to improve proficiency on both the mountain and in the race course. Both development and competitive teams offered.
  3. Freestyle Team broadens skills to include maneuvers on terrain park features such as boxes, rails and jumps.

Bear Valley Team Program Approach

The goal of Bear Valley Teams is to train each athlete to successfully navigate all snow conditions and terrain in a safe, confident manner. Team composition is determined by discipline (All-Mountain, Race, Freestyle) and ski or snowboard ability. While efforts will be made to include siblings and/or friends on the same team, their abilities must be similar.

Bear Valley Teams are based in part on the USSA Training Systems and Skills Quest Program which provide guidelines to achieve an integrated system for athlete development. Although the USSA Training Systems’ ultimate goal is to develop skiers and riders for world class competition, the fundamental skills embodied in this system comprise the critical foundation for expert skiing and riding whether it is for competition or pleasure.
