Last winter the USSA surveyed its clubs and coaches to determine actual on-snow training levels of our alpine athletes at the youth and junior levels compared to the recommendations set forth by our National Training Systems.
This survey indicated the following:
· On average, U10s ski close to the number of target days of skiing per year (40-60 days). But a significant number ski 31-40 days (or in some cases less). And a minority ski more (60-100 days).
