Telluride Ski & Snowboard Club :

 
PLEASE NOTE. TSSC is a competitive ski club.

REQUIREMENTS TO JOIN. Minimum of two years Ski School experience is a required prerequisite to joining! Athletes must be able to ski all the blue runs on the mountain confidently in parallel turns (for team gravity) and all the black runs on the mountain aggressively for all other programs. Once athletes have basic skiing skills we coach them in a competitive environment in the discipline of their choice beginning in 4th Grade. 3rd Grade is a transition year, although the athlete will remain in our Gravity program during 3rd grade, coaching becomes more focused toward the discipline the young athletes are leaning toward.

Mission, Beliefs & Goals
Beliefs: We believe that coaching children in the unique and competitive world of skiing and
snowboarding fosters individuality, freedom and growth of character and self esteem. The mountains provide a challenging and inspiring environment. Teamwork promotes camaraderie, a sense of responsibility, community and respect.

Our Mission is to instill and nurture a passion for all snow sports along with developing character, discipline and desire, which encourages young athletes to reach their highest potential.

We provide coaching, training venues and competition opportunities that allow young athletes to achieve their full potential and to embrace the Club's culture of building lifelong confidence, character and integrity while fostering camaraderie and discipline.
