1 DAY - SATURDAYS - December 2023 - April 2024

The 1-Day YSL program is an introduction to ski racing through the Youth Ski League race series. This group trains on Saturdays, split between Loveland Basin and it's expansive terrain offerings, and Loveland Valley, home to Loveland Ski Club's dedicated race training venues. Sunday race opportunities occur throughout the ski season.

The 1-Day YSL program is staffed by highly qualified LSC coaches with guidance from upper levels of the program, and done in accordance of LSC's overarching athlete development plan. Completing the 1-Day YSL program sets the athlete up for further steps in ski racing through increasing training days at 2-Day YSL or increasing the level of competition at Age Class racing. At this level, athletes are introduced to Slalom and Giant Slalom.

Additional drop-in Sundays and holiday camps are available at an added cost.
