The primary objective of the Utah Olympic Park Ski Mountaineering team is to develop both the skills and passion for practice ski mountaineering. In doing so, we hope to foster a lifelong love for both the outdoors and sport. Athletes will work towards developing skills to participate in competition that may include regional races, national races, and eventually international races. Skiers will optimize specific ski mountaineering skills and fitness to develop enjoyment and proficiency in the sport. Individuals will focus on learning technical and mental skills through experiences and drills that will create a solid foundation in ski mountaineering.
