The PRC Buddy Werner (BW)/Pre-Development Team is a Sunday program that has been the mainstay and success of Powderhorn Racing Club over the last 30+ years. The program will cater to the younger and less experienced athlete who wants to improve their all-around skiing skills while providing an introduction to youth ski racing. This is the entry level program offered by Powderhorn Racing Club.
Participants should be Mountain 4 skiers capable of skiing blue runs at Powderhorn Mountain, stopping, getting up without assistance, and can comfortably link wedge turns.
If your child is not able to load and unload the lift or comfortably ski all green runs at Powderhorn, they are not ready for this program.
Each participant will be placed in a group of similar age and ability for their coached lesson. The lessons will vary from week to week with the emphasis on fun and improving skills and technique.
