Race & DASH Program Objectives
The objectives of this program are to build athletes that are passionate about the mountains, are positive ambassadors of Dodge Ridge and are developing a life-long love of snowsports. This will be accomplished through Cooperative Coaching, terrain-based learning, safety (demonstrating Skier + Rider Responsibility Code), and fun.
The teams will explore a variety of terrain including off-piste and ungroomed conditions. Members will grow and learn by supporting each other, cooperating on team drills, and Identifying how to make strategic decisions on the hill to become more successful skiers. Their knowledge and respect for the mountain makes each team member an ambassador of Dodge Ridge, so while they are learning the mountain, the team will learn and demonstrate the Skier + Rider Responsibility Code.
