Pico Ski Club

The Pico Ski Club is a Social member not-for-profit organization.

The Pico Ski Club Supports a Race Program with more than 150 young athletes, guided by more than 20 coaches. We believe in a fun and positive learning experience that Club racing, skiing, VARA (Vermont Area Racing Association) and USSA racing have to offer. The program allows youngsters the opportunity to realize their potential while learning an exciting and exhilarating life-long sport. The programs teach the fundamentals, positive aspects of competition, the skills of setting and pursuing goals, and the value of hard work. Skiing is one of the few sports that a family can enjoy together for many years, and the Race Program provides a welcoming and positive atmosphere for kids, and many social opportunities and events for member parents to meet and ski with other adults. Race programs are open to general public and you need not be a Pico Ski Club member to participate.

The Pico Ski Club offers programs for youngsters 5-20 years old, from the U8+ program geared toward newcomers to the sport (ages 10 and younger), through the U21 age division. All our programs follow a basic skiing/racing progression while keeping the emphasis on FUN. Coaches utilize the US Ski and Snowboard Association's technical and tactical progression skiing program with a mixture of drills, exercises, free skiing and gate training to help our young racers improve and reach their goals.
