To create a successful and elite junior ski team by balancing personal development, training, goal setting and competition on an individual basis.
Welcome back to a new season of junior development ski racing. We improved on an already excellent program with a great coaching staff, added training and a streamline competitive cost.
Participation in the JDT program is for racers 14 and under.
JDT Programs 2020
Three JDT programs are available for the 2020 season:
1) our traditional JDT Basic is 2 days per week (Thursday PM and Sunday) $700-
2) newly added JDT More offers 3 days of training (Friday PM, Saturday AM and Sunday AM) $900-
3) JDT Plus our most popular program allows racers to ski up to 5 days a week (Tuesday PM, Wednesday PM, Friday PM, Saturday AM & Sunday AM) $1100-
Applications are collected by our new online registration form and payments are due in full by November 1; WinAlpine JDT fees include all coaching at Cannonsburg during training or race days. Trips, racers and training away from Cannonsburg are billed at $20/day per participant to cover coaches travel fees.
In order for us to help staff and plan for a successful season, all applications received after November 1st will incur a $100- late fee. Late fee does not apply to new members with WinAlpine and/or racers joining the WinAlpine JDT team for their first season.
Race entry fees and transportation to races are your own responsibility.

Racers new to WinAlpine JDT are eligible for a $199- season pass at Cannonsburg. Lift tickets and or passes are not included in the cost of any program, travel or away event. JDT races usually have day tickets included in the cost of event registration.
Parent participation is highly encouraged. WinAlpine will charge a $100 full refundable fee in addition to tuition fees at time of registration if a family does not wish to meet the 2 days of volunteering commitment during the 2020 season. You may choose from any race event, home function or fundraiser. Sign up genius will be used for all events.

Email / email club list
Email is how we communicate with you, so please check it regularly. It is very important you check for messages from us each day before you leave for training, or races to see if there are any changes in the schedule.
Parent Meeting & Welcome Dinner Oct. 20 (Sunday)
We will be hosting our annual welcome dinner, ski swap and parent meeting at Cannonsburg. Tickets are available for purchase at www.skireg.com/winalpine2020 - visit for more information and details.
Bring a friend or family member that may be interested in ski racing; remember, this is a life long sport that you can do with your family and enjoy for many years. We will cover the training plan and race training locations and details. We hope that our entire coaching staff can join us.
This is the time to check your equipment and make sure it is all safe, sound and the proper size. We have great resources to help you make the right choice for equipment and get set up for next season. It is never too early to get your equipment ready for next season. If you have questions (do not be shy, it is better to prepare equipment now than when we have snow). Ski racing is made great when we make the best choices we can in order to prepare ourselves for future success.
Dryland training has already started on each Saturday this fall. We meet at Cannonsburg at 9am and conclude at 1030am each Saturday. Our final dryland training is November 2nd (Saturday). If we can add additional dates, we will notify you by email. Dryland consists of conditioning and drills to better prepare the athlete’s muscles and motor skills for the upcoming ski race season.
