The Cadillac Area Ski Club and Caberfae Peaks Ski Resort are proud to continue the Junior Race Program. The 2024 season starts January 4th and runs thru March 7th. This program is for all area children, age 8 to 14, who wish to expand their skiing skills into the area of alpine ski racing. Those 7 and under need coaching staff approval.
Training will be held on Thursdays from 4:30 to 6:30 & Saturdays 10 AM to noon, with three official weekend club races against other area ski clubs and many spring race opportunities at Caberfae Peaks. All training will be at Caberfae Peaks, with athletes and coaches meeting at the race shacks located at the base of Olympia on South Peak.
Our first day of training we traditionally host a coach and parent meet and greet at the bottom of Shelter near the ticket office. Our program is always excepting new participants, feel free to contact us at anytime.
Coaching for the 2024 season will be divided between experienced area coaches; Meg Mogan, Keenan Cooper, Larry Waldo and Seth Houk.
Training will consist of a wide range of on hill activities used to increase athletes technique and tactics of alpine ski racing. Exercises within and outside of set courses are aimed at challenging athletes in order to increase balance, experience, knowledge and love of alpine ski racing. These will include focused skill building drills, race day preparedness and gate training involving stubby courses, brushes, directional cues, etc.
