The Development Team is a program specifically designed for intermediate and advanced skiers, snowboarders and sit skiers who want to take their skiing and riding to the next level through a mixture of gate training and big mountain skiing/riding. All participants on this program should be able to ski or snowboard independently on at least all blue runs at Sunshine Village. Training will take place on both blue and black runs. Each session will maximise time on snow, use varied terrain, and include an introduction to racing as a tool for skier/rider development. Weather dependent, we offer 16 Saturdays on snow (AM: using gates, PM: varied terrain). For potential team members further afield than Calgary, talk to us about arranging 5-8 full weekends instead.
Depending on each team members stage of development, we will also provide the opportunity to participate in other adaptive ski events such as races and training events with other partner organizations (additional costs will apply).
Thanks to the support of Sunshine Village, we are able to provide a free lift ticket to all participants on this program. Please let us know whether you require a lift ticket or not on the booking form. Sunshine Village will also donate a Gondola Only Pass or 1 Managers Ticket ($52) to 1 caregiver per participant. Upon registration, you will need to submit the name of this Caregiver, and this name will be added to Sunshine’s list. If you require a different caregiver to join the guest and take advantage of the Gondola Only Pass or Managers Ticket, please let us know the week prior to the lesson.
All guests will be issued with a preferred parking pass. This will be issued per guest and may only be used on the day of the program. Preferred Parking is not VIP Parking, but allows the parking attendant know that the guest is part of the RMA Ski & Ride Program. Parking attendance will guide you to a parking location near the gondola.
If cold weather causes Trail Sports to cancel and reschedule a lesson, we will call/email you on the day of the scheduled activity to make you aware of this. Trail Sports will determine a suitable replacement date either on Family Day Monday or after the end of the program. If the participant chooses not to attend a lesson due to inclement weather, an additional date will NOT be scheduled for this participant.
