Our coaches are dedicated to developing skiers with versatility, all-around athleticism and the ability to adapt tactically, both in and out of a racecourse. Family involvement is a key element to the success of our race programs. Parents' participation in hosting events and fundraisers make this an affordable and fun opportunity for the whole family. From the family here at 49° North, we hope to see you soon!
