Ski race programs for children

Hello all,

My family and I are likely to move to the Zurich area in the fall, and are very excited about the opportunity. We have found this forum to be extremely helpful in answering many questions and providing a lot more clarity about daily life.

One question we have concerns the availability of ski race programs for children. Currently my children -- ages 7 and 9 -- are members of the Squaw Valley team, in California, and they would like to continue to race in Switzerland. I've done some research and thus far have found only one similar program, and it is located in far-off Verbier.

Are there any such programs closer to ZRH?

Many thanks,

Tom

Yes. Most towns and villages have a ski club for children and they seem to be racing and training most weekends on the slopes local to Zurich.

As an example, here's the website of Hausen am Albis race group who are part of the Hausen am Albis ski club.

Most towns around Zurich have something similar.
