This age group increases the competition as an introduction to scored racing and the National Points listing. Development continues to be refined as directed by US Ski and Snowboard’s Alpine Training System with more time on snow and an increased number of races. Races include open races throughout New Hampshire and NHARA’s U16 state-wide qualifier race series to advance athletes to USSA Eastern Region’s sponsored races and US Ski and Snowboard's National sponsored scored races. Most training is focused on SL and GS racing with SG training/racing.
Equipment Needs: a helmet that meets the FIS helmet standards; 1 pair of slalom (SL) skis and 1 pair of giant slalom (GS) skis; access to SG skis; appropriate equipment for event specific training/racing.
