Apex Carvers (Nancy Greene Program)

For children aged 4 – 11 (as of December 31).

This is where it all begins! The Apex Carvers Program follows The Nancy Greene Ski League which is a national program, inaugurated shortly after Nancy Greene Raine’s gold medal win at the 1968 Grenoble Olympic Winter Games. Since then, the program has been successful in introducing thousands of children to alpine skiing. Many of Canada’s top international skiers received their early training in Nancy Greene Ski League programs.

The program introduces children to basic ski techniques and skills, basic safety rules, and teamwork.  Enjoyment of the sport and the mountain environment is also emphasized.  Focus is put on developing skills to ski on all terrain, in all conditions and most of all, have fun on skis!

Grouped according to ability, your child skis with the same coach and group of kids all season.  The kids are challenged to be athletic on their skis and learn proper technique with games and terrain.

The Nancy Greene Ski League also introduces children to competition.  These events, held at the club and zone level, provide young skiers the opportunity to test the skills they have learned in the program in a fun and friendly environment.  The emphasis in competition is place on individual progress, team results, camaraderie, and fair play.

Note:  Skiers should be comfortable going up the T-Bar lift and skiing down the Okanagan Run (blue).
