Enhanced Ski Program (ESP, ages 5-16)
This 10-week program (Saturdays) is perfect for young skiers (ages 5-16) eager to improve their skills and to become life-long all-mountain skiers. Participants should be able to manage equipment and clothing, load the chairlift, and ski independently.
Enhanced Snowboard Program (ESP, ages 5-16)
New this season, a 10-week program (Saturdays) similar to our Enhanced Ski Program that helps young snowboarders develop with supervision and instruction from our coaches. Participants should be able to manage equipment and clothing, load and unload the chairlift, and snowboard independently.
Learn to Race (ages 7-16)
This is an 11-week program designed for all-mountain skiers (ages 7-16) who want to see what racing is all about. Skiers will learn racing basics through drills and directed free-sking.

This will usually include a USSA race held at Discovery (if one is scheduled) and\or the Youth Ski League (YSL) championship race. USSA membership is required to compete in sanctioned events.
Discovery Alpine Race Team (DART, ages 7-16)
