Grizzlies 17 Day

Offered Saturdays OR Sundays, this program is for our young skiers who may be newer to the sport of skiing but also for those a little older who are not interested in a race focused program or have other commitments. Athletes in these groups can range from 5 to 11 years of age. Regardless of where the group starts the year, they will develop the skills to ski Lake Louise’s black diamond runs. Athletes do need to be comfortable on green runs and be able to load the chair with minimal assistance before joining this program. Many of our older athletes in this program will start the season comfortable on all the terrain Lake Louise has to offer. Skill development is fun for all athletes in this program. The Grizzlies’ coaching team can build skills without the athletes even knowing that skill development is occurring. The coaches make skiing fun by pairing games and challenges with proper selection of terrain. This builds skills and confidence in our young skiers. This program focuses on safe, fun, free skiing. There is very little gate training as we selectively let the mountain be the teacher. This group will ski 17 days, and have 17 days of smiles in a safe and constructive group setting. The athletes in this program become proficient, confident skiers in no time!

The 17 Day program begins mid December. It runs every Saturday OR Sunday, with the exception of the Teachers Convention/Family Day weekend and the Easter weekend, until the end of the season. During the season, athletes will participate in the “Grizzly Cup” and “Gene Durand Classic”, where they race down a simple course and celebrate with their teammates. Towards the end of the season there is also the opportunity to enter the “Doug Meyers Memorial Race” that is held at Lake Louise, which is two fun filled days of racing. All groups then wrap up at the end of April with the Family Fun Race for athletes, coaches and parents followed by the Club Banquet!
