Holiday Camp is currently not being offered without enrollment to a GPSC program. Programs are listed below.
Every year the Greek Peak Ski Club offers our Holiday Camp during the school break between Christmas and New Year's for skiers ages 6 to 18. Camp is 9am - 3pm daily with hot chocolate breaks and 1 hour lunch (not provided or supervised). The four day camp includes expert training by our USSS certified coaching staff with special events including a scavenger hunt, annual camp race and party.
The Greek Peak Ski Club Holiday Camp is the perfect way to try out the club. If your skier loves the experience, you can join the club at the end of the camp and keep the fun going all season long! (Camp fees will be applied to the remaining club membership dues.)
Our Developmental programs are for our youngest athletes and those not yet ready to move into an Alpine Racing program. Children in this group should be able to get on and off the lift by themselves and ski with basic skills independently and proficiently.
Our Developmental Programs all train during the Holiday Camp and the 9 Saturdays following the camp. Training is 9am - 3pm daily with hot chocolate breaks and 1 hour lunch (not provided or supervised). These athletes will have the opportunity to participate in 1 – 3 “fun” races at Greek Peak and other local mountains during the season. Weekly training will include runs on the NASTAR course when available.
The GPSC Gatebusters program focuses on developing children's basic ski skills with an emphasis on fun and safety. Lead by experienced children's ski coaches, groups will explore the mountain and participate in game-based skill development. Through guided free skiing and challenge drills, children will gain and refine the fundamental skills necessary for effective parallel turns on a variety of terrain. Our goal is to develop confident/competent skiers who have the skills to continue in our race program. Children will be grouped based on developmental levels. Training will include an introduction to ski racing and use the mountain's NASTAR course, when available.
The competitor age classes are determined by birth year. All ages are determined as of December 31st of the racing season. Participants in the Alpine Racing program must have active memberships with both the US Ski & Snowboard Association (USSA) and NY State Ski Racing Association (NYSSRA) in order to enter races.
Training for our Alpine Racing athletes starts in early December (when the mountain is open) and continues through early March. These groups train at Greek Peak during the Holiday Camp and on Saturdays and Sundays (on non-race weekends) form 9am to 3pm. Weeknight training from 6pm to 8:30pm is included - see age groups below for details.
At the U10 & U12 level, athletes will be able to compete at several Central Council Races. The mountains that make up the Central Council are: Greek Peak, Toggenburg, Labrador, Song, and Skaneateles. The final U10/U12 race of the season is the weekend Kandahar Festival which is held at different mountains each year. The top competitors at the Kandahar Festival qualify for invitation to Kandahar Champs. Please note: Race fees are not included in the program fees and each athlete must register for races at Admin Ski Racing (www.adminskiracing.com).
At the U14 level, New York State is divided into Eastern and Western divisions. Athletes within their region will compete to qualify for the U14 State Championships. Qualifying is based on both individual runs and overall race results. Athletes who do not qualify for U14 States will be able to go to the Kandahar Festival. At the U14 level there are specific equipment requirements: helmet with FIS RH 2013 sticker for GS and Super-G, separate skis for slalom & giant slalom, and protective slalom gear (chin guard, pole guards and shin guards).
Please note: Race fees are not included in the program fees and each athlete must register for races at Admin Ski Racing (www.adminskiracing.com).
The U16 and U19 athletes will often train together during the season. At the U16 and U19 level, athletes will participate in the NYSSRA Empire Cup Series. Racers may enter any Empire Cup race and are not confined to any one part of the state. Athletes will compete to qualify for the Empire State Winter Games. Ranking is based on results from the Empire Cup Series. Separate State Championships are held for U16 and U19. State Championships are open races and the only requirement for participation is having raced in 2 Empire Cup Series races in December, January or February. The top athletes at the State Championships will qualify for the USSA Eastern Region Championships.
