Overview

**NEW FOR 2020-2021** The Shredders team is designed for skiers that have graduated from Mighty Mites or a similar development program, and still require more skill development opportunities and want Diamond Peak Adventures. Shredders will have the opportunity to do more race training, terrain park training, and big mountain skiing providing a pathway to Tahoe Series Racing or the All Mountain Team.

*To be in the SHREDDERS TEAM, the athlete must have approval either from a previous coach or the lead Shredders Coach. New and returning interested athletes will be initially evaluated by Silver team coaches during the first two scheduled weekends of the ski team (December 12/13 & Dec 19/20). To request an evaluation email our team manager.
