Age group: Competitors aged 14–15 (as of December 31)

Skill Level: Learn to Race (SEE AIM2WIN)

The U16 series prepares skiers to perform in the Learn to Race stage and are introduced to more intensive training and competition. The program provides a competitive series for 14 and 15 years – with benchmarking at the CanAm level (Western Canada and Western USA) – allowing them to test their skills against their peers at a regional level. The U16 program also develops ski specific physical and mental skills and continues to develop the athlete’s technical and tactical skills.
