Ski Teams


The Discovery Ski Education Foundation (DSEF) is a nonprofit, parent-run organization. The team has been at the heart of coaching young athletes with talent and enthusiasm since Discovery’s early days. Members of our team develop more than just the ability to ski extremely well — they also learn valuable life skills like discipline, focus and teamwork. Though being the speediest on the slopes often seems to be the priority.
