Alpine & Ski Cross Team!

Our alpine & ski cross programs are designed for athletes who strive to reach elite levels, the program aims to develop the skills necessary to successfully compete in high calibre races. A focus on free skiing on variable terrain, developing race techniques and improving all-round skiing skills will set the foundation for athletic skiing and racing. 

Our team of talented, qualified alpine & ski-cross coaches will work with our young athletes to bring out the best in your child’s ski racing development, whilst having fun in a safe environment. Our coaches will determine training groups by age and skill at the beginning of the program.

During the season, you will find updates about all training programs in our WSC Weekly Planner.

We recommend that athletes planning to attend Ski and Snowboard Australia (SSA) Children’s or FIS events participate in the SSA National Skills Assessment

Ski and Snowboard Australia (SSA) Skills Assessment 

Ski and Snowboard Australia (SSA) will host the National Skills Assessment at Perisher on the 22-23 June 2019. Athletes will be challenged to complete a series of tasks which will help to identify athlete’s strengths and opportunities for improvement. Athletes will be better prepared going into the season knowing their Skills Assessment scores and will be rewarded by athletic success when focusing on skill acquisitions.  

The Skills assessment is an initiative of SSA, dedicated to providing aspiring athletes with a comprehensive understanding of their strengths and opportunities for improvement in relation to the key fundamental skills associated with Alpine Skiing. This is not a test, rather an assessment that provides valuable feedback for athletes and Perisher WSC coaches, for long term development.

Please register as it is not part of the PWSC programming or on a scheduled weekend.

To participate in SSA events (including the Skills Assessment) you will need to register for a SSA Alpine Membership. If you are looking to participate in SSA competitions- Children’s Carnival or FIS evets you will need the Junior racer (Child) or Alpine Racer (FIS). If you are not intending to compete at either of these series the Club Racer membership includes the SSA Skills Assessment. More information and SSA Memberships are available on the SSA website.
