Pinnacle Junior Development (Jr. Devo) introduces the technical and tactical fundamentals of alpine ski racing. Jr. Devo training includes directed free skiing and skills acquisition through drills, both in and out of gates. This program participates in the Sunday Race Series at Pine Knob and Mt. Holly, and also has the opportunity to complete in the Junior Development Team (JDT) series around the state of Michigan.
For calendaring and tagging purposes we have color coded the Jr. Devo training groups.
If a practice for your program is canceled it CANNOT be made up by attending another programs practice. All practices are weather permitting.
Racers will have the option to attend both the Sunday Race Series and JDT races. It will be the racers choice on weekends of conflicting events.
This is popular race series where athletes can race in their own age group for single races as well as collect season long “World Cup” points. Weekly prizes and medals are awarded to athletes of all ages. The Sunday Race Series runs for seven weeks beginning at Pine Knob and alternating with Mt. Holly for seven total races. The format is mainly Giant Slalom however there is talk that there may be a race or two of paneled slalom.
The Junior Development Series is a group of races held around Michigan by resorts and their teams. Each race is a little different since the hosting team can decide the discipline and scoring. These races offer a great start for racers to learn how to travel, race on different terrain, and have fun learning how to compete. Athletes are responsible for their personal registration and lift tickets for each race. Pinnacle will have coaches at these races to help support a positive race experience.
All teams will have limited spots available. If a team is sold out, a waitlist will be created. We hope to satisfy our waitlist, however it will depend on number of coaches available and hill space. We expect to have wait list settled by the end of October.
Registration will open using the following schedule:
In general, PRT assumes that when an individual registers for one of our programs, that individual will have an exciting and rewarding experience for the entire season. However, in certain situations an individual may not be able to complete the programs for which payment has been made. For those situations, a refund policy has
been developed. If an individual needs to withdraw from a program for any other reason, the individual may make an application for refund by writing to the Board of Directors of PRT.
