The Registration "Flagstaff Alpine Ski Team" is not currently available.
The Flagstaff Alpine Ski Team (FAST) is the starting point for all skiers. Once a skier can confidently ski the entire mountain, they can continue to advance their skills on the All-Mountain Team, train with the FAST Race Team, or move to the GCFT Freeski Teams and focus on backcountry, moguls, or the park.
The athletes are grouped by age, maturity and skiing ability. We are a small program and are flexible. If you have a request for your child to ski with a friend and/or sibling, please let us know. We will do our best to accommodate, however please be aware we try to group by ability and may need to adjust as appropriate.
Skiers are placed into teams based upon ability level. We track the ability throughout the 12-16 week training season* using US Ski & Snowboard progression and curriculum.
FAST is dedicated to the training of young athletes to teach mountain awareness and safety, improve technique, and provide racing opportunities for all athletes.
The FAST Race Team competes in the US Ski & Snowboard Southern Series of the Rocky Mountain Division of the Rocky-Central Alpine Region.
The goal of Team FAST is to teach mountain awareness and safety while instilling strong ski fundamentals and HAVING FUN. We follow US Ski & Snowboard curriculum* of skills progression. Many of our coaches are highly certified and passionate about winter sports and teaching our youth the fundamentals of skiing. Our goal is to provide 14-16 weeks of training and competition opportunity, depending upon program selection, AZ Snowbowl terrain and availability.

If at any time you have questions you may always ask your athlete’s coach or Alpine Director Charlie Boyer. Our primary goal for each athlete is to instill a passion for skiing or snowboarding and to accomplish this we will make training a fun and productive environment. We will teach the athletes how to ski and snowboard well in a variety of terrain, along with introducing them to competition.
