The Masters Program
The Masters Program is designed to take your skiing to the next level while skiing the gems of Palisades and Alpine with our athletes and professional coaches. The Full Time Masters Program offers a choice of gate training and free skiing every day of the week except Wednesday with a midweek option Monday-Friday (no Wednesdays). This program is designed to build long-term development for all advanced skiers over the age of 18. 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
Generally, gate training is scheduled Sunday-Tuesday, Giant Slalom and Thursday-Saturday Slalom training. However the schedule will be adjusted to account for upcoming event preparation, snow quality, conditions, weather, and other factors determined by the Head Coach and operations.

On a daily basis, coaches will place athletes in a group that suits their abilities and skillsets. Generally, there are two groups available in the morning for freeskiing and at least three groups on most afternoons. Gate training will be from opening until 11:30AM this season. Time may be provided during the training day for video analysis, skills and drill work and/or freeskiing to complement the coaching. The Gate Training group will after a lunch break, work on focused free skiing and drill in the afternoon.
