Clifford Race Program

The Clifford Race Program is a fast-paced, 10-week program, with a min of 2hrs/week, where your child will put loads of mileage on their skis!  With friendly energetic coaches, and fresh air, Mount Pakenham’s coaches are equipped to offer your child a safe, fun learning environment.  Your child will receive a season’s worth of individual feedback to improve personal goals.  Fun races are scheduled to offer participants the opportunity to race in a team environment and to measure their own individual progress throughout the season!

Skiers must be able to ski the terrain that is accessed from the chairlift without assistance and can ride the chairlift without any adult assistance. 

This program is geared towards skiers age 7-13 who want to ski lots and improve their technical skiing. For ages 12-14 and interested in becoming an instructor someday - Please take a look at our Teaching Assistant Program.  

‘Racers’ will spend minimum 2 hours each training day on snow in a group with other athletes of similar age & ability.

As your child progresses through the Clifford program they will learn to enjoy more performance from their skis, gaining confidence & performance in gates and on steeper terrain.  ‘Racers’ will learn to coordinate their movements and steering ability to move quickly on steeper hills, over rolling terrain, bumps and through brushes and/or gates. They will spend more time on challenging terrain and will learn to have confidence at higher speeds, on ice, in moguls and jumps.  Upon completion of the Clifford Race program, students will be proficient, versatile skiers and ready to tackle most terrain at any resort.

Note:  Race days will be scheduled and determined closer to the start of program.
