Ski Team Details
Welcome to the Mt. Rose Ski Team landing page, which will serve as the primary point of communication about the programs we are offering as well as race and training alerts for participants.
There will be periodic e-mails, but in general athletes and parents will be expected to find information here.
Please refer to the guide below for important updates regarding the status of a program or potential event cancellations that will appear here in the future.
These are NOT BEGINNER PROGRAMS.
There will be a skiing assessment of each new athlete to ensure appropriate program placement.
Athletes not possessing minimal skiing skills for the program will be asked to move to the more appropriate developmental ski program. Example—Shredders who do not meet the minimum skill requirements will be moved to Rippers.
Those who cannot be accommodated with a program will be refunded for the program’s cost.
Your child must meet the minimum age requirement for each program to participate.
Program age parameters are not flexible— zero exceptions.
For example, 6-year-olds are not allowed in shredders.
LOCATION & LIFTS
All development ski team programs start on the snow near Northwest Express Load at the main lodge.
All competition ski team programs start on the snow near Zephyr Express at Winters Creek Lodge.
All athletes must be able to access and ride all chairlifts at Mt. Rose – Ski Tahoe with minimal assistance from lift attendants or other chairlift riders.
Athletes will ride with the safety bar down on all chairlifts.
Training days will not be switched once the program has started. We cannot accommodate athletes showing up on their non-training day. For example, Come on a Sunday when you are in a Saturday program.
There are no makeup days—This is a season-long training program.
There is no team facility for the athletes. Athletes are expected to arrive at the meeting area ready to train. Gear storage or stowing of personal items is not provided.
There is NOT a waiting list for programs that sell out. Any availability will be updated at skirose.com
PARENTS LODGE USE
Dining and short-term use of both the Main Lodge and Winters Creek Lodge is welcomed by all our guests (including Ski Team Parents) as the facility is intended to operate on the idea of flipping seats to accommodate multiple guests over a given period. This turnover of seats is especially crucial on “weather days” when more guests are looking for a quick break from the cold.
Ski Team Parents are asked not to occupy seats inside the Lodges for extended periods (AKA camping out with a laptop for several hours.)
This website is the primary communication piece for all athletes and their parents. Any changes or updates will be noted on this page. There will be periodic e-mails, but in general, athletes and parents will be expected to find information here.
There is currently NO text message application in use for notifications.
