ATS Equipment-Phase 2

One pair of skis is all that is needed for a phase 2 athlete to train and race on. Course setting rules are based on the expectation that racers have only one pair of skis, and by using one pair of skis in slalom, giant slalom, kombi and SkillsQuest exercises, the skier will become more versatile. Boots should fit snugly but comfortably, and it is critical that skiers can flex their boot. Skiers at this age should learn how to keep track of their equipment and to carry it on their own.
