The Masters Program

The Masters Program is designed to take your skiing to the next level while skiing the gems of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows with our athletes and professional coaches. The Masters Program offers a choice of gate training and free skiing every day of the week except Wednesday. This program is designed to build long-term development for all advanced skiers over the age of 21. We accomplish this goal by building your skills and confidence in a variety of snow conditions, across increasingly challenging on- and off-piste terrain. In addition, our gate training not only makes our participants more competitive but also is a proven method of refining technique.

Daily Schedule 

On a daily basis, coaches will place athletes in a group that suits their needs. Generally, there are two groups available in the morning for freeskiing and at least three groups or most afternoons. Gate training will be from 9:30am to 1:00pm this season. This will allow for two courses on most days, with time during the training day for video analysis to complement the coaching. The Gate Training group will after a lunch break, work on focused free skiing and drill in the afternoon.
