It’s difficult to know sometimes at the beginning of the season if your child is better suited towards one group or another. We would recommend that you consider the structure of the group, All Mountain being the least structured and Race being the most structured, as the starting point and then match from there. However, if your child starts in one group and decides that it is not the best fit, we are happy to work with you to find the group or team that best matches his or her needs.
This is common as children are new to the program and working to find the best fit. If you think that your child needs to be in a different group, please let us know and we will work with you to find the best fit for your child.
General program days start between 8am and 9am (depending on the group) and end between 2:00pm and 3:00pm. For more examples of a typical program day for each group, you can go to The Windham Race Factory website under Programs and choose specific group to see more details for each group.
- We aim at having all groups 6x1 or smaller
- When we are training on Warm Up or Why Not, we will ask athletes to circle around in groups of 2 to avoid clustering

We do not serve lunch. Athletes and families are expected to either bring their own or make arrangements to eat during the lunch break period.
- We encourage all of our families to follow state recommendations and to support our safety guidelines on and off the hill
- Working together we can all do our part to ensure we get to do what we love - skiing
