All Mountain Team

All Mountain Team

12 to 17-year-olds

Program Overview

The All Mountain Team is designed for graduates of the Development All Mountain Team. This non-competitive team trains primarily at Diamond Peak, with travel to other resorts offered about two times per month on Saturdays or Sundays to explore the Tahoe basin. While our goal is to prioritize visiting the Diamond Peak Season Pass partner resorts, this team may venture to other resorts like Mt. Rose or Ikon or Vail resorts. Tickets to these resorts are not included in tuition.

In this program, athletes will delve into various aspects of skiing, including alpine skills, off-piste skiing, tuning basics, Freeride tactics, technical fundamentals, all-mountain safety, and having fun in all conditions.

Participation in Tahoe Freeride competitions is strongly encouraged but is not required.

Program Schedule

The All Mountain Team offers a 4-day program: Wednesdays and Thursdays (12:30-4 PM), Saturdays, Sundays, and specific holidays from 9 AM to 3 PM. The program runs from late November to late April, including the choice of half-day sessions (AM/PM) on weekends.

For detailed information regarding dates and pricing, please refer to the registration page.

Required Equipment

Families are responsible for providing essential equipment, which includes All Mountain/Freeride skis (85+mm underfoot), with Powder Skis and Park Skis recommended, well-fitting boots with thin socks, poles featuring large adjustable baskets, and proper winter attire like waterproof gloves, fleece, wool, synthetic, and down layers, along with ski pants. The Diamond Peak Ski Team offers team jackets available through a seasonal lease program.

Additionally, protective gear such as helmets, back protectors, and goggles (with multiple lenses recommended) are mandatory.

Athletes must carry water, snacks, and sunscreen while skiing, and it's advised to consult coaches for gear sizing and to ensure equipment approval before on-snow training. Coaches will conduct meetings in the fall concerning required high-quality, properly fitting, and tuned equipment suitable for athletes moving towards expert skiing levels in various conditions.
