Ski Team: Age Class & U16

Since 1972, Sunlight Ski Team has offered quality ski race programs for kids from ages 7 through 17, from beginning racer to future US Ski Team or collegiate racer. With great past and present success in producing high level athletes in the Rocky Mountain/Central Division and beyond, Sunlight remains a participation-based team with an emphasis on learning, improving, and enjoying a lifetime of skiing and sport over pure race results.

Programs range from part time one or two days per week, to  full-time Age Class and U16 programs that train and race 9 months/year. We have athletes ranging from just enjoying running gates to top Rocky Mountain Division and National competitors. If you don’t see an exact fit for your athlete, feel free to contact us to perhaps create a  custom schedule.
