Why Nakiska Alpine?

What makes the Nakiska Alpine Ski Association a program that is a cut above the rest? It is simple - our program, our philosophy and our commitment to the sport of alpine ski racing. We pride ourselves on the following:

  • We train at the great Nakiska Ski Resort who we have a great working relationship with. The support we receive from Nakiska and RCR is unmatched. Nakiska is truly a great ski hill to train at.

  • A highly qualified and experienced coaching staff with an exceptional retention rate. Our staff love working for one of our Nakiska Alpine member clubs and we love supporting their career development.

  • We maintain a maximum 6:1, athlete to coach ratio for all programs - from U6 to FIS.

  • We have a progressive sport development system that is athlete centred, coach led and parent supported.

  • We have a strong dryland training program starting at U10, with specialized Strength and Conditioning coaches who support our on-snow program starting at U12.

  • We have an incredible support network of parent volunteers who welcome all new families into the fold. Whether you can ski or not, your volunteer time with our organization is valued and appreciated.

  • Our entire staff recognize that while podium wins are fun, our daily training goals revolve around skill development, supporting each athlete to reach their own personal goals and to have fun. Loving the sport of alpine ski racing makes the bitterly cold days worth every turn when you have the run to yourself!
