Telluride Development Squad is an 8-session youth ski and snowboard program offered through the Telluride Ski and Snowboard School. The Squad’s goal is to foster a fun and safe learning environment, while developing skiers and snowboarders who have a true love for the sport, the mountains, and Telluride. Each session, The Squad will promote team-building and model safe mountain tactics in a non-competitive environment.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for kids in the region to develop a lifelong love of skiing and riding in a program that promotes team building, mountain safety and learning in a non-competitive environment."
Each day your son and/or daughter will be skiing or riding with their coach from 10am to 3pm, fueling a life-long passion for their sport! For our youngest member of the Squad, appropriate breaks and snacks times will be built in to the day to accommodate the needs of the kids.
