Program Information & Sign Up:

Allegro Program- Freestyle & Freeskiing
Ages 7-18 | For Advanced Skiers
Times: 8:30am to 3pm (Lunch Break 11:30am to 12:30pm)

Allegro is a high level recreational ski program that thrives on fun; is a fast paced environment where young skiers will gain confidence and grow skills necessary to ski anywhere on the mountain, in any conditions. Groups will spend time learning how to manage smaller sized natural and man-made features, that include jumps, moguls, boxes or rails. This program provides a great introduction into what it's like being a Freestyle and/or Freeskiing competitor without the added commitment. Participants will establish goals that would include performing basic tricks on jumps and boxes, skiing a mogul line top to bottom with airs and skiing switch comfortably on green terrain. Though not a requirement, participants are encouraged to compete in one competition a year at Stratton. A rolling skills assessment will provide performance measurements and will be used to map continued participation within the program. US Ski & Snowboard Short Term License is required for participation in any US Ski & Snowboard event. Event registration fees are not included.

Twin Tip Skis Highly Reccomended.
