The Alta Race Team (ART) is an introductory racing program for skiers ages 8–11, consisting of 11 sessions and four races. The goal of ART is to introduce young skiers to the personal development and excitement associated with alpine ski racing. ART participants skiing will consist of approximately 50% gate training, 25% drills and 25% directed free skiing with a coach. Terrain skied will be approximately 25% green, 50% blue and 25% black. The primary skills emphasized include gliding fast on gentle terrain and carving arcs on moderate terrain. More challenging terrain is used sparingly in the lesson plan to enhance skills, boost comfort zone and create excitement.

ART racers will participate in four local age group Youth Ski League Races. YSL is the USSA introductory race series for this age group. Skiers may only have birth years 2011–2014. Racers compete in the U10 or U12 USSA category according to birth year. U10 = 2013 and 2014. U12 = 2011 - 2012.

Parents are responsible for transporting their racer to the races. A parent is required to remain at the race throughout the day. Race entry fees are included in the ART Registration Fee. Race day lift tickets and USSA Racers License are not included and are an additional cost. A USSA-approved race-specific helmet is required.
