Alpine Programs

AVSC Alpine has a broad range of programs from weekend only to 6 days per week. Regardless of commitment level, we engage and challenge our athletes. Our goals are to push technical and tactical abilities and to teach the values of a team while providing an enjoyable experience.

Athletes must be able to ride lifts alone and be responsible for meeting coaches independently at designated time.

Program fees do not include season passes, competition travel costs, or cost for USSA and FIS registration.

For more information, contact Alpine Program Director, Johno McBride at 205-5113 or jmcbride@teamavsc.org
