Alpine Programs

Cooper Spur Alpine Team offers programs for athletes age 6-18, with each program providing different levels of commitment based on goals and interests.  Our programs are designed to provide training, competition, growth opportunities for young skiers and racers in a fun learning environment.  All of our ski programs  are built on solid fundamental skills in both free-skiing and race technique, with small groups and maximum ski time.  We believe learning is based on repetition, but fun is what provides the motivation.  Once the basic skiing skills are mastered, coaching emphasis shifts to refining technique and developing the physical, mental, and emotional skills to be a competitive athlete and good teammate.

All Ski companies make good products and the coaches will be able to advise parents on which would be suitable for their athlete.

Shaped or side cut skis are when the tip and the tail are wider to help the athletes to carve by creating an arc in the snow. Slalom skis tend to have more side cut than do giant slalom skis (short, quick turns versus longer turns).

It is beneficial to go shorter rather than longer when choosing length for children. A shorter ski will facilitate turning, allowing quicker progression of basic skills and increase your child’s enjoyment of skiing.

Their skis should be between the chin and the top of the forehead with slalom skis more at chin level and GS skis at forehead level. Check with your coaches before you purchase your child’s equipment.


A softer flexing boot will be more effective than a stiffer boot due to strength limitations and skill level.

To determine if a boot is soft enough for your child you should be able to see the forward boot flexion happening in the upper cuff simultaneously with the lower leg. If the upper boot cuff does not move or moves very little the boot is too stiff and will hinder your child in their skill progression.

Boots should fit properly, tight but not uncomfortable. Remember the boots might feel too tight at first but will break in within a couple of ski days. Buying boots oversized is counter productive for both performance and fit. Buy boots that fit properly and check with your coaches if you have any questions about your child’s equipment.

Night Skiing

It is very important if you are training at night that you wear goggles with a clear lens.

Dark lenses or goggles meant for daytime skiing are not effective at night & can not only hinder your child’s training but even make it dangerous when skiing gates if they cannot see properly.

Night training is often colder, so remember to wear extra layers at night. All of these things will make for a more enjoyable skiing experience.


USSA approved Ski Helmets are mandatory for all training and racing. It is required that racers wear their helmets at all training and races. No exceptions.
