Mid-Week Program

About

The TAS Mid-Week program is for 11-18 year-olds who want to refine advanced skiing skills and continue alpine ski racing. This program also offers advanced training and competitive racing opportunities. We emphasize racing fundamentals, technical racing skills, and gate racing tactics in all alpine racing events, preparing the skier for elite-level competition.

Mid-Week $800 (Tue & Thu Night)

Add on $500 (Wednesday Night)

Weeknight training begins in January and runs through March. Tuition does not include Fall camps or Thanksgiving Camp.

Ability Requirements

Most athletes in this program will have competitive racing experience. Athletes must be able to ski all runs at the Summit at Snoqualmie, including all runs at the four mountains: Alpental, West, Central, and East. Athletes also need the ability to ski advanced terrain with linked, parallel turns. They must be able to listen and follow directions from an adult. This is not a ski school and the focus is on racing fundamentals (technique and tactics).

Equipment Requirements

GS and SL ski required. SG and DH skis recommended. Ski Racing HELMETS are required for all athletes. Athletes U14 and older must use helmets that meet the new FIS standards. Slalom does not require FIS sticker. Many athletes use their older helmets for Slalom or have a slalom specific helmet. Look for this sticker on the back:
