High School



XLR8 Alpine Racing’s High School Program provides results-driven coaching for high school racers seeking to reach the next level of their ski racing. Training Saturday and Sunday from 9am-noon each day, high school athletes will see serious improvement in their ski racing. We will strengthen fundamental skills and teach advanced Slalom and GS technique and tactics by using a variety of proven ski racing drills and the latest USSA training progressions.

Our positive coaching approach promotes strong character, increases self-esteem, and instills confidence on and off the hill. The additional training that Team XLR8’s High School program provides enables dozens of racers to make it to the Michigan State Championships each season. We have helped to develop a number of State Champions and put numerous racers on the podium.
