Some common FAQ’s when it comes to skiing.
When and where is training?
U6-U10 Training takes place at Springhill Winter Park on Tuesdays from 6:30pm – 9:00pm and most Saturdays from 10am – 1pm. There is a one day program as well for Tuesdays or Saturdays.
Training does not include lift tickets. Springhill usually gives the kids a reduced rate on a season pass or individual passes may be purchased.
U12-U18 train all Tuesdays at Springhill Winter Park and most Saturdays, but there will be some training opportunities at Asessippi ski Resort on selected weekends. Please refer to teamsnap for all events.
My child hasn’t skied before, does that matter?
No. Our coaches will take anyone and turn them into a skier!
When do we start?
As soon as Springhill is open and the snow is on the ground! We usually end the third week of March.
Where do I get equipment?
Sampsons have lease programs for junior skiers as well as new equipment for purchase. We also hold yearly ski swaps within our club for ski equipment and team jackets.
Will we ski in cold weather?
There is a section on our website with guideline for cold weather. Follow the Cold Weather link.
What is the volunteer commitment?
There is no formal commitment but volunteers are needed on race day as the parents help put the races on. Volunteering is a great way to meet other parents, interact with the racers and help out the club.
