U99 Masters

MastersGroup

This winter, get outside, have fun and feel the adrenaline rush among friends by joining our Masters program. Masters U99 is a great program for intermediate/advanced skiers aged 18-99 who want to feel the excitement of skiing gates.

Our group aims to enhance and improve the skills and technique of individual skiers in a fun and friendly environment. Whether you want to race or you are just looking to have some fun and a different experience on the hill, U99 is for you.

PMRC Coaches will teach the fundamentals of racing technique and provide you with tips and guidance to help you improve no matter what your experience level. Training will be technical free-skiing and Slalom and GS courses. We will also have the opportunity to use our wireless timing system for timed training (and friendly competition!) throughout the season.

The PMRC Masters Program is a ten week ‘Train to Train or Race’ program for PMRC Parents and the general skiing adult population that will begin January 9th and run until the last week of March.

Eligibility: 18 and over in age with intermediate to advanced skiing ability
