Team Redbirds – SKI

Team Redbirds is a skiing program designed for children ages 5–6 who need more challenging training than the Rosebuds “Bear” (advanced level) class but are not old enough to participate in the Falcons Learn to Fly Program. Children in this program will develop their skiing through a fun and challenging weekly curriculum, learning new techniques to increase their confidence and skill level in skiing steep intermediate and advanced terrain. They will also have the opportunity to train and race on a Falcons Learn to Fly race course, introducing them to the next-level program.

Program participants must also be able to do the following:

  • Effectively communicate with coaches without parent assistance
  • Get their skis on with minimal assistance and use ski poles
