The Grom Program is our new program for U8 athletes this season (ages 6 and 7 as of 12/31/16).
- Designed to be a bridge program from RMR Mountain Explorers to SRRC for skiers who are ready for introduction to fundamental ski racing skills. Each Grom athlete needs to be a proficient skier able to keep up with their peers, ski all slopes except Upper Ramrod and Upper Gunbarrel, be a parallel skier and be able to ride all lifts without assistance
- Weekend-only program – Saturday and Sunday, morning and afternoon practice
- 90% freeskiing focused on all-mountain and fundamental skills, and FUN – emphasis on high mileage and diverse terrain with young, former racers as coaches for great visual modeling
- Will participate in select Saturday Morning Race Series GS races only, not SL races and NASTAR races, 10% of focus
