Ski Racing D-Team

The Buck Hill Ski Racing Development Team offers programs for kids ages 6 to 18 who want to improve their skiing by gaining experience in basic racing techniques and course skills. We consider our youth program a “stepping stone” to the Buck Hill Ski Racing Club, as well as providing a home for high school racers who would like additional practice time or for racers who want a less competitive racing experience
